"Creative nonfiction stories are dramatic, true stories that use scene, dialogue and close, detailed descriptions--techniques usually employed by poets and fiction writers--to examine and explore a variety of subjects: politics, economics, sports, race relations, family relations, the arts and sciences and more.
Creative nonfiction heightens the whole concept and idea of essay writing. It allows a writer to employ the the diligence of a reporter, the shifting voices and viewpoints of a novelist, the refined wordplay of a poet and the analytical modes of the essayist." -- Lee Gutkind
