What is Creative Nonfiction?

  • “’Creative nonfiction’ precisely describes what the form is all about. The word “creative” refers simply to the use of literary craft in presenting nonfiction—that is, factually accurate prose about real people and events—in a compelling, vivid manner. To put it another way, creative nonfiction writers do not make things up; they make ideas and information that already exist more interesting and, often, more accessible.”
  • --Lee Gutkind (editor of Creative Nonfiction Journal)

dialogue

  • Conversation between characters
slide19

Rule 1: Use Quotation Marks to indicate words and phrases that are spoken by characters.

  • Example: “When we get there you will need to put your shoes on.” “But, Mom! I don’t want to wear my shoes! Can’t I just go barefoot?” “They won’t let you come in with me unless you have your shoes on.” “Do you want me to leave you in the car? I don’t think so.”
slide20

Rule 2: Always start a new paragraph when changing speakers.

  • Example:
  • “When we get there you will need to put your shoes on.”
  • “But, Mom! I don’t want to wear my shoes! Can’t I just go barefoot?”
  • “They won’t let you come in with me unless you have your shoes on.”
  • “Do you want me to leave you in the car? I don’t think so.”
slide21

Rule 3: Make sure the reader knows who is speaking. In a narrative vary the placement of the speech tags.

  • Example:
  • “When we get there you will need to put your shoes on,” the mother instructed.
  • “But, Mom!” Charlie retorted. “I don’t want to wear my shoes! Can’t I just go barefoot?”
  • “They won’t let you come in with me unless you have your shoes on,” came her response. “Do you want me to leave you in the car? I don’t think so.”
  • “Humph!” Charlie sighed and crossed his arms in protest.
slide22

Rule 4: Use correct punctuation, capitalization and spacing.

  • -all punctuation goes inside the quotation marks
  • -use a comma in place of a period if you are indicating the speaker after the quote
  • -use a comma after a narrative leading up to a quote by a character:
  • Example:
  • She checked her rearview mirror: Charlie wasn’t wearing his shoes, “When we get there you will need to put your shoes on.”

Writing a Good Narrative:

  • The Goal: to convey personal experiences in a convincing way to the reader that persuades them of the significant of a particular event.
  • Deciding what to write about: Brainstorm a list of significant events or experiences in your life. Make a list of the characters or players in each of these vignettes. Identify the setting or settings. Think of an active beginning. Be conscious of tone. Include dialogue, sensory detail and imagery.
