Steven Church has a post up over on Brevity’s Blog today about the “stealth memoir.” Its an essay on the craft of creative nonfiction you probably don’t want to miss. Parachute pants and Def Leppard also make an appearance. And while you’re there, if you’re NOT familiar with Brevity, browse around. Its a treasure trove of delightful creative and craft material. And if you’re interested in submitting to their magazine, they regularly publish stellar creative non-fiction work from names you know, and names you may soon know, all in gems of 750 words or less. Check out their submission info here. Seriously, all the cool kids are doing it.
And in the meantime, check out this essay!
