Creative Writing Research Guide : Researching Creative Nonfiction

What is "Creative Nonfiction"?

"Creative nonfiction" is a broad term and includes forms of writing like the personal essay, memoir, literary journalism, travel writing, food writing, the lyric essay, biography, and more.

Creative Nonfiction, the magazine

Perhaps the definitive source for the genre is Creative Nonfiction, both a foundation and a magazine. The Little Magazine Collection (on the 9th floor of Memorial Library) has the full run of the publication. You can also browse online content and the foundation's other resources on its website.
