My memoir piece, Mushrooms and Memory, was longlisted in the 2015 carte blanche contest. Here’s what a reader had to say about the story: “Thank you for writing something I have in my heart but never knew how to express in words.” ~ Giulia De Gasperi, translator & editor, Radici Translation and Wordcraft
I approach creative nonfiction not as a genre, but as a mode of writing that can be explored in various genres. I started focusing on this genre during my MFA, studying with Wayne Grady. I immediately realized I had been writing CNF all along. It’s just that everyone called it poetry.
