Nina Amir, an author, journalist, nonfiction editor/coach/consultant and founder of Write Nonfiction in November, will chat with us about her yearly blog and challenge, which begins next month. Called “Write Nonfiction in November” (www.writenonfictioninnovember.wordpress.com), it is her response to National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO), a contest that has fiction writers writing 50,000 words in 30 days during November. Her blog challenges nonfiction writers to spend the month of November writing and completing a work of nonfiction.

While they do so, the blog itself provides nonfiction writing, promotion and marketing information to help them sell themselves and their writing to publishing companies and readers. Additionally, via the blog comments, Write Nonfiction in November provides a forum for nonfiction writers to comment on their writing experiences during November each year.

Nina will discuss different types of nonfiction, including:

  • journalistic articles
  • personal essays
  • inspirational essays
  • booklets
  • books

If time allows, she’ll also discuss:

  • the difference between personal essay and memoir
  • platform building on the Internet
  • how to use your nonfiction skills to write articles to generate publicity for yourself as a writer
  • how the business of writing can be a spiritual endeavor
