    Creative nonfiction
    The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Margot Singer presenting “The Bendable Art of Creative Nonfiction.”
    Full Description: The Tuesday Lunch Series welcomes Margot Singer presenting “The Bendable Art of Creative Nonfiction.” Creative nonfiction—including memoir, narrative journalism, personal and lyric essays—is arguably the most exciting area on the literary scene today. But in recent years, the hot debate over where to draw the line between fact and fiction has sidelined important questions of literary form. How does nonfiction actually work? How does it recombine and transform elements of other genres? What distinguishes nonfiction from other kinds of prose? This presentation will share highlights from a new collection of critical essays, "Bending Genre: Essays on Creative Nonfiction," in which leading writers explore nonfiction’s hybridism, innovative structures, and unconventional forms. Open to emeriti faculty, faculty and staff.
    Address: Burton D. Morgan Center, Denison University, 150 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023
    Open to Public: No
    Sponsored By: Office of the Provost
