Creative nonfiction is the fastest-growing segment in the writing market. Yet, the majority of writing guides are geared toward poetry and fiction writers. Tell It Slant fills the gap. Designed for aspiring nonfiction writers, this much-needed reference provides practical guidance, writing exercises, and a detailed discussion of the range of subcategories that make up the genre, including memoir, travel writing, investigative reporting, and more. References to works from Margaret Atwood, E. B. White, Virginia Woolf, David Sedaris, and other leading authors illustrate key points.

Decent descriptions of the types of creative nonfiction. Useful exercises. The examples struck me as lifeless, probably because I’m not a fan of much creative nonfiction. Recommended.
