How the Sausage is Made: An Introduction
Joe Oestreich, Nonfiction Editor
To celebrate five years of Waccamaw, we asked five creative nonfiction writers to each write an essay about the essay they published with us, a feature we’re calling, “How the Sausage is Made.” Per our habit, we gave these writers very little guidance, simply telling them that their meta-essays could take whatever form they wanted. They could discuss the genesis of the piece, the inspiration, the writing process, what they hoped to accomplish, the true story behind the true story, or, heck, the recipe for Farfalle with Toasted Walnuts and Peas in Vodka Cream Sauce, which, thankfully, one of them took us up on, and we’re planning on trying tonight.
