I recently wrote a review for Assay: The Journal of Nonfiction Studies on an AWP panel I attended.
Here is a description of the panel:
Following the Thread of Thought
How do writers follow the thread of a thought through the maze of events in an essay or memoir? What is the art of reflection? Writers of nonfiction may have more latitude than poets or fiction writers to tell as well as show in their work, but the challenge is to keep these ruminations from becoming dull, simplistic, or moralistic. Panelists examine the way writers keep ideas lively and offer techniques for effectively weaving the thread of thought into the fabric of nonfiction.
Panelists: Steven Harvey, Phillip Lopate, Ana Maria Spagna, Sarah Einstein
It was an amazing panel, chuck full of great insights, ideas, and inspiration not just for writers of nonfiction, but pastors who write sermons would benefit from this as well. Click here to read my review!
