Litquake Writing Class
Writing Nonfiction Like a Novel with T.J. Stiles

A wine reception in Litquake’s 6th floor offices will follow the class.

Researching that sprawling nonfiction book project, but finding yourself bogged down in the narrative? Every great nonfiction book, from biography to academic tome travelogue to memoir, needs the same arc, the same tension found in great fiction. But how to unearth the throughlines of your work? Two-time Pulitzer Prize recipient T.J. Stiles won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in History for Custer’s Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America, and the 2010 Pulitzer for Biography and the 2009 National Book Award for Nonfiction for The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt. A Guggenheim fellow, he has taught creative nonfiction at Columbia.
