<b>Breathe life into your nonfiction writing using the wisdom and advice in this inspirational guide every writer should own <P>When the poet Emily Dickinson wrote, "Tell all the Truth but tell it Slant," she provided today’s writers of creative nonfiction some sound advice: tell the truth but don’t become mere transcribers of day-to-day life. Artistic truth offers a depth and vibrancy that goes beyond the everyday. But how do we, as writers, move beyond cold fact to create elegant nonfiction that makes the most of our individual "slant" on the world we live in? <P>The award-winning authors of Tell It Slant stretch your writing muscles as they reveal the specialized art of creative nonfiction. Whether you are writing a memoir or researched essays, the authors will guide you along your journey, using intensive instruction and an abundance of writing exercises to show you how to: <P><li>Gain access to your own memories </li> <li>Discover the stories around you </li> <li>Find your particular voice </li> <li>Look for material outside of yourself </li> <li>Address ethical issues when writing about other people </li> <li>Tackle (and enjoy) background research </li> <li>Avoid clichés and discover fresh language </li> <li>And keep the passion of writing alive--even when your well runs dry </li>
