Multi genre writing

So, I am trying to come up with some creative writing genres for my multi genre writing project. I need something more than the autobiography, short story, too-broad-for-anything type. I chose Edith Wharton for my topic, which allows plenty of creativity. I really want to get a hold of her letters. To research into her life that much will help me capture her voice. I don't know much about her somewhat-scandalous life, but I want to learn more. I have an extensive list of questions that are still unanswered. Hopefully some different ideas will come to me soon. I think I will create some type of shopping list or receipt of hers showing some interesting items she bought. Let me know if you can think of anything at all.


  1. I think part of Mary Biddinger's PhD work was somehow related to Edith Wharton. Maybe you can email her with some questions.

  2. Thanks, that's a great idea. Do you have her email address? I still can't find her letters! I searched all the Summit County library branches. Barnes & Noble doesn't have it either. :( I would really like to get HER perspective rather than everyone else's.
