Often in creative nonfiction, writing telling, well-crafted stories from our lives isn’t enough. Readers crave perspective, insight, interpretation, and sometimes researched information. This panel will discuss ways of crafting essays and memoir that move beyond “What happened?” to answer, at least implicitly, “So what?”
