For a special issue of the journal Storytelling (Heldref Publications),
Winter 2006, the guest editor is soliciting contributions that address the
problem of non-fiction narrative as a mode of storytelling. The editor
envisions essays that explore this problem in several genres, including
non-fiction by novelists, journalistic layouts (such as in National
Geographic), photographic intertextuality, multimedia representations of
popular or public figures such as Terri Schiavo or George Bush, and
theorizations of nonfiction that employ the techniques of fiction.
