This book helps writers cultivate their nonfiction storytelling skills by exploring the hard choices writers confront when crafting any kind of factual narrative. Rather than isolating various forms of narrative nonfiction into categories or genres, Sue Hertz focuses on examining the common challenges that are unique to the nonfiction writing process. Integrating not only her own insights and experience as a journalist, nonfiction book author, and writing instructor, but also those of other established writers and editors representing all nonfiction styles of writing, Hertz aims to guide writers through key decisions in order to tell the best story possible. Blending how-to instruction with illuminating examples and writers' commentaries drawn from original interviews, Write Choices is a valuable resource for writers at any stage of their career seeking to understand the art and craft of factual narrative.
