Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: The Ongoing “More than Memoir” Campaign

CNF“But as much as I love memoir—in fact, we’re currently working on a memoir issue, due out next spring—I am sometimes frustrated that creative nonfiction and memoir have, in some ways, to some audiences, apparently become synonymous.

These lines from Lee Gutkind’s “From the Editor” column in the latest issue of Creative Nonfiction, which I’ve been reading this week, resonated. Strongly. That shouldn’t be a big surprise to any longtime readers of this blog. But if it is, please return to this post from last summer, which I’ve been thinking about all over again thanks to Gutkind’s column.
