“Perhaps most salient here (in the Writing Nonfiction workshop) was understanding the process and the method. That approaching a work of nonfiction doesn’t necessarily have to be different from fiction. Rather than creating characters, we study them. Instead of building a world, we live it, examine it and paint it with words.
This workshop helped me to push the boundaries of what I know of writing—and of myself as a writer. I learned where to begin the exploration of writing a work of truth, but with flair and story.”
