Nonfiction doesn’t mean no-drama. Good storytelling of any kind must set a compelling scene with characters readers can care about. Using examples from published non-fiction works—memoir, personal essay, and long-form journalism—we will examine the individual components of scene making: setting, action, dialogue, and manipulation of time, along with the ways these interact to create tension, subtext, momentum and dramatic impact. We will also discuss the similarities and the differences of scene function between fiction and nonfiction.
