defines creative nonfiction as "(also known as literary nonfiction
or narrative nonfiction
) a genre
that uses literary styles and techniques to create factually accurate narratives. Creative nonfiction contrasts with other nonfiction
, such as academic
or technical writing
, which is also rooted in accurate fact, but is not written to entertain based on writing style or florid prose."
