Memos on Nonfiction

I’m pleased to share a PDF of the craft lecture I presented to participants of Tampered Press’s nonfiction workshop, held between January 8 and 9, 2021. In it I attempt close readings of essays by Teju Cole, Yvonne Owuor, and Amitava Kumar, using their work as prompts to consider notions of place, language and grief in the writing of nonfiction. Share widely, but contact me for reproduction.

Onwards to 2021!
