bare elements: A collective approach to narrative nonfiction
As the days slowly grew brighter and winter changed to spring, a community of graduate students attended to the basic elements of clear, clean, evocative creative writing.
Bare Elements offers honest, true, powerful insights, delving into the complexities of family, lovers, caregiving and the need for care, memories of birthplaces, homelessness, high school dances, and missed opportunities.
These new narratives emerged from a diverse, intergenerational community of new writers. Bare Elements is a vibrant collection of fresh, accessible, stripped-down writing.
