Summary
"Tell all the Truth but tell it Slant."--Emily Dickinson. With these words, Dickinson offers sound advice for nonfiction writers: Tell the truth but become more than mere transcribers of daily life. Since 2003, Tell It Slant has set the standard for creative nonfiction instruction, showing writers how to move beyond mere facts and, instead, make the most of their own "slant" on the world. This revised and updated third edition offers: New and expanded chapters on writing about identity, maintaining a productive work/life balance, and navigating the publishing industry, an anthology with diverse pieces that range from traditional essay to the graphic memoir, expanded discussion of contemporary and emerging literary forms and new "Try It" writing exercises throughout the book. Whether planning a course or learning on your own, Tell It Slant provides everything you need to know to develop a distinctive voice and to craft compelling creative nonfiction. This book provides the basis for a complete education in nonfiction writing, wherever your classroom might be
