"The introductory material in the book is the best instructional discussion of the genre of creative nonfiction I’ve ever seen. It’s thorough, broad, indicative of the authors’ depth of understanding of the genre and its many subgenres."
— Rebecca Blevins Faery, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"Creating Nonfiction is very current, diverse, energetic, and innovative in its selection, range, and subject matter."
— Michael Martone, University of Alabama

"It's as if Bradway and Hesse have a direct line to my students' questions and concerns about writing and researching nonfiction: How do I cite sources? How do I come up with good interview questions? Does this need dialogue? I see in this book many ways to address these issues in my nonfiction workshops."
— Kirsti Sandy, Keene State College

"One of the things that most impresses me is that this text feels very accessible. It is written in clear and vivid prose, with concrete and specific examples, but it is not overly simplified or dumbed down. It’s a smart overview, explanation, and analysis of the genre."
— Jennifer Whetham, Green River Community College
