"Crossing the Line: Nonfiction Techniques for Fiction and Creative Nonfiction"
Adele Annesi

Stories that sound real often are, at least in part. This seminar and mini-workshop explores the nonfiction techniques that work best for fiction and creative nonfiction, and how the line between these two genres is increasingly blurred. To optimize the time, bring your current writing project and a brief description of the same. For more information, visit Connecticut Authors & Publishers Association.
