Including personal essays, memoirs, historical narratives, and literary journalism, creative nonfiction is, perhaps, the most diverse of literary genres. David Fenza, Philip Gerard, and Valerie Miner, all seasoned award-winning writers, read from their own work and discuss the renaissance in nonfiction and the changes and challenges confronting writers of nonfiction.
