"[W]hen I teach fiction writing and non-fiction writing, I often heretically stress the idea that the two are not as different as people claim they are. They’re both about creating a literary experience for the reader—one that happens on the page, one that’s about arrangement of detail, emotional generosity, and creating some kind of tension between the voice on the page and the mind of the reader. Anything that’s written and literary has more in common with itself than it has in common with other work."
