From MUSE: Fictional Truth

Facts are StupidSlate

In which a writer discusses two writers and a fact checker and their varying ideas about changing the facts to get at the truth.

I may use this article with my 11th Graders as a bridge between The Things They Carried(especially our discussion of "How to Tell a True War Story") and an autobiographical writing project with 826 Valencia.

Should a writer who claims to be writing nonfiction always stick to the facts and just the facts, ma'am? Or can liberties be taken?
