What is Creative Nonfiction?
Friday, Jun 5, 2015, 9:00 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Armed with an M.A. in Creative Writing, Janna Marlies Maron is a self-professed woman in progress. In addition to teaching privately, she is an adjunct professor at Sacramento City College and William Jessup University. Always on the lookout for new opportunities, Janna has recently added “publisher” to her resume with the creation of Under the Gum Tree, a digital literary arts magazine that publishes creative nonfiction storytelling. She single-handedly recruited a creative team of editors, designers and interns to get the magazine off the ground. Its fifteenth issue was released in April 2015, and it was listed as a “must read” local publication in the May 2012 issue of Sacramento Magazine. The same article recognized Janna as a “local literati.” She is also the co-director of TrueStory, a nonfiction reading series and open mic in Sacramento. She is an expert in the creative nonfiction genre, teaching others to tell true stories without shame.
