Fiction vs Non-Fiction? Really?

It won’t exactly be arm-wrestling, but more like watching these two meta-genres go head-to-head in a lively pas de deux highlighting writing’s essential dichotomy. What drives a writer into either camp? When do you choose how to tell a particular story? How have these considerations shifted or blurred with the rise of creative / literary nonfiction and historical fiction? Panelists who work in one, the other, or both will discuss how they perceive the strengths and pitfalls of each when it comes to engaging readers. Audience members should come “armed” with their own questions.
