Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the most original, thoughtful exposition of ways to approach creative nonfiction . . . Fresh and innovative in a landscape of readers that is increasingly redundant."

"I'm a huge fan of Pollack's approach and have already incorporated it into my classroom, with wonderful results."

"The form method supports the process that I believe is essential in the writing of creative nonfiction: What QUESTION drives this essay?"

This book is great at explaining different techniques that quality creative nonfiction should have. It also gives examples of great creative nonfiction writing. A good well rounded book.
