Who We Are

The Cork Non-Fiction Writers Group Welcomes you to our blog. Here you will find a variety of nonfiction work ranging from poetry, memoir, essay, etc. Topics for 2010 include: nonfiction essay, childhood home, subjective realities, other times and places, humour, other decades or history, where writing takes us, and poetry.
What is non fiction? On this we agree with Rebecca McClanahan who wrote: “When we write nonfiction we relinquish our right to change what happened to suit our imagined version. The creative part of nonfiction lies elsewhere, in the way our imaginative eye views the world – selecting details, combining and recombining information, and reshaping experience....When the eye of imagination is engage, it illuminates the artful possibilities hidden within actual events."

This is a list of links to group member's writing and online presences (other than in our group blog). The list is by group member in no particular order.
