Fiction and/or Nonfiction: Writing One, the Other, or Both!

Fiction and/or Nonfiction: Writing One, the Other, or Both! Online

Do you write fiction, nonfiction, or both? Do you want to switch from one genre to another? Too often, writers pigeonhole themselves into a specific genre, even if they feel the call to write something completely different. 

This workshop will help you overcome hesitation by clearly differentiating fiction, nonfiction, and memoir/essay, as well as explaining the similarities among the various genres. While different "rules" may appply to each (they will be discussed), the underlying logic is the same: the work must be authentically researched and original and true to the author's vision.

Participants will get a chance to write a brief story or anedcote in their new genre of choice to get a sense of what each requires. They may not be as unlike as they initially appear!

Sandra Gurvis (sandragurvis.com) is the author of 17 commercially-published books and hundreds of magazine articles.
