 Why Write Fiction?

 “Why write fiction?  Why not write something True?  What’s true?” asks Phil Deaver winner of the Flannnery O’Connor Award for Short Stories; author of one

appearance in the O. Henry Anthology; winner of an NEA, and twice a winner of a Bread Loaf fellowship. Deaver says, “A true story can be true in more ways than one and strict allegiance to what really happened may not reveal the truth. Life doesn’t happen in stories; we make stories by selecting details from what really happened; it’s how the brain works, how we attempt to make sense of dreams.”

“A true story can be true in more ways than one,” says Phil Deaver.

And tonight we have that incredible writer in residence and professor of English at Rollins College, Phil Deaver. (Enters to the theme music of “We will Rock You!” by Queen.)
