Storycraft : The Complete Guide to Writing Narrative Nonfiction | Jack Hart
Hart covers what narrative writers need to know, from understanding story theory and structure, to mastering point of view and such basic elements as scene, action, and character, to drafting, revising, and editing work for publication. Revealing the stories behind the stories, Hart brings readers into the process of developing nonfiction narratives by sharing tips, anecdotes, and recommendations he forged during his decades in journalism. From there, he expands the discussion to other well-known writers to show the broad range of texts, styles, genres, and media to which his advice applies.
With examples that draw from magazine essays, book-length nonfiction narratives, film and broadcast documentaries, and radio programs, "Storycraft" will be an indispensable resource for years to come.
