Creative Nonfiction: Panel Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join three nonfiction writers as they discuss the many facets of non-fiction, ranging from personal essay and memoir to journalism and history. How much research should be done and what's the best way to approach it? How do you honor the stories of the people who appear in your work? Panelists include Elissa Washuta (My Body is a Book of Rules), Cindy Hval (War Bonds: Love Stories from the Greatest Generation), and Julie Riddle (The Solace of Stones). All three authors can also speak to editing, as Riddle is the craft essay editor for Brevity, Washuta is the Saturday editor at the Rumpus, and Hval is a columnist for The Spokesman-Review. Moderated by Angela Rasmussen, department chair of English and Foreign Languages. Panel will take place across two sessions; attendees can choose one or both.  

Free and open to the public.
