On the Art and Craft of Literary Nonfiction

January 30, 2015 § 1 Comment


hairskirtOur newest issue of Brevity, released just last week, features four fresh craft essays, and we wanted to bring them to your attention.

If you haven’t visited our Craft section lately, you should.  We have a rich resource of craft pieces from past issues, plus the quartet of newcomers:

  • Brenda Miller writes on creating a “shared space” between reader and writer,
  • Nancy Geyer examines how Lydia Davis’ language wonderfully mimics her subject matter,
  • Dylan Landis argues for allowing the reader to construct the emotional response in fiction and memoir,
  • and Katlyn Stechschulte discusses useful (and not so useful) workshop critiques.

Drop on by.
