CBC Canada Writes CNF Tip!

Last month CBC Canada Writes published a tip by me about writing creative nonfiction! Here it is:
When we read personal stories, it’s because we want to inhabit that writer’s life for awhile in all its complexity – all its messy humanity. This includes wrestling with the big ideas and “isms” like racism, sexism, and colonialism that unfortunately often come with being human. With memoirs, biographies, and other forms of creative nonfiction, we get the opportunity to artfully explore these things through dialogue and details. We can give life to theories and philosophical questions by attaching a name, face and story. We can express the universal through the personal.
