>"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.”
