The University of Georgia Press is launching a new nonfiction book series titled Crux: The Georgia Series in Literary Nonfiction.
John Griswold, series editor, wrote this recent post for Essay Daily. If you want to know what a nonfiction editor is looking for, John tells you. Some highlights:
* The writer’s discovery on the page
* “A narrative mind is great, but so is an architectonic mind, an ethnographic mind, an anatomical mind, a lyrical mind, an epical mind, a moral mind, an empathetic mind, an investigative mind.”
* “Memoir: a way of seeing patterns, making discoveries, of suggesting a life and showing processes, people, places, things.”
I might print these out and post them near my computer.
