>"The Geography of Consolation" by Alexis Paige

>

Alexis Paige, who attended the 2011 Memphis Creative Nonfiction Workshop last September and blew us all away with her talent, has published one of the best essays I’ve read in a long time. Get a cup of coffee and hold onto your seats for this one:


“The Geography of Consolation” in the May/June issue of Ragazine.

This is how you do it.

This is how you write creative nonfiction.

So if you want a short course in the genre, or if you want to be inspired, moved, awed, or humbled, read this essay. I had all sorts of responses to it, but I have to admit that my overriding thought on her essay was, “I wish I could write like this.”
