Writing Creative Non-Fiction by Barbara Lounsberry

Barbara Lounsberry will bring her immense expertise to her workshop entitled "Writing Creative Non-Fiction" at the 2011 David R. Collins Writers' Conference. Her three day course will take place from 3:15-4:45 in the afternoon June 23rd through 25th. She invites students to describe their own non-fiction projects and will spend the first day discussing the best research practices. On the second day, she will highlight techniques used by literary non-fiction writers. Finally, on the third day, the class will focus on the potential ethical and legal issues involved with writing about real people, places, and events. Lounsberry will also provide descriptions of publishing outlets for the non-fiction writer.

Barbara Lounsberry, an English Professor at the University of Northern Iowa, has dedicated her life to literary non-fiction. Amazon.com describes her book, The Art of Fact, as a "timely call for critical appreciation of the artistry of non-fiction and offers valuable insights to students and fans of contemporary non-fiction" She has also written her own creative non-fiction which has appeared in Creative Non-Fiction, The Fourth Genre, The North American Review and other publications.
