Saturday, March 26 [IN-PERSON @ AWP22 in Philadelphia, PA] When Form Meets Content: Structuring a Nonfiction Book with Daisy Hernández, Elissa Washuta, & Melissa Faliveno

Structuring a book-length work presents unique opportunities and challenges. How does form meet content at over 50,000 words? There are a myriad of different ways to answer this question. This panel brings together a diverse group of nonfiction writers from across the country to discuss their approaches to form in a manuscript, the many craft decisions made during the writing process, and the different storytelling lineages called upon in crafting the final version of the work.
