It's been a while since I posted anything new in this forum, so I thought perhaps a reintroduction is in order. I'm Matt, and I'm happy to moderate this occasionally traveled forum. I think most of what people ask about in here is memoir, which is clearly a popular nonfiction area. There are at least dozens of other forms of nonfiction, too, so don't be shy if you're interested in other areas.

 

In the past, I've created threads about book proposals. Those threads can certainly bumped back into contemporary use or we can start new ones.

 

Let me know if there's interest in any specific areas that haven't been discussed previously.

 

FWIW, I try to chime in on the memoir queries I see, but I don't always see them, so I apologize if I've missed yours.

Hi Matt!  :biggrin:


~I am neither an author nor a writer; I am a storyteller with good grammar.~

 I am so new to this site that if I were a baby, I'd be an embryo.  Wait, that's not accurate.  I would be the proverbial "twinkle in someone's eye".  That is how new I am to all of this.

 I was referred to this site by an author friend specifically because it has proven not only to be a great forum to share finished material, but to get the creative juices flowing in the first place. 

My first love is creative non-fiction and I am currently working on a memoir about the unusual way that I grew up. I'd love to find partners to critique my work in this genre.  I just don't know where to look.

Welcome MamaTee. I suggest you also post what you're looking for in the Wanted Ads section.

 

There have not been many posts about creative nonfiction here, you're right. I happen to enjoy reading it and I'm working on an essay that I hope to see posted in an online journal. Feel free to start a thread about creative NF here in the nonfiction forum; let's see what kind of discussion we can generate!
