A few seats are still open for my craft seminar at the North Shore Readers and Writers Festival in Grand Marais, Minnesota, on Nov. 5. The seminar, “You Can Say That?” addresses the legal and ethical issues when writing creative nonfiction.
Some topics I’ll talk about:
- Facts vs. emotional truth
- Writing about family
- For what reasons can someone sue an author?
- How to treat dialogue in creative nonfiction
