I am a teacher and writer who believes that creative nonfiction affords a writer tremendous creativity... within the vast constraints of truth. <br><br>My favorite expression of the power of the genre comes, ironically, from a work of fiction: Ursula Hegi's <i>Stones from the River</i>: "It had to do with what to tell first -- though it hadn't happened first -- and what to end the story with. It had to do with what to enhance and what to relinquish. And what to embrace." Indeed. For me, the arrangement of scenes creates the emotion in creative nonfiction. So, too, does the rhythm of the sentences. I am an auditory writer -- you can find my work in audio as well as print.
