New Theme: Dillard Plain

The Dillard Plain theme, a more understated version of the Dillard Theme, is named after Annie Dillard, whose writings, including The Pilgrim at Tinker’s Creek (1975) and For the Time Being (1999) helped define a new kind of narrative non-fiction, mixing deeply personal, poetic observations with natural history.

The Dillard Plain theme is airy and light, and is made for narrative non-fiction, but can serve equally well for a range of fiction and non-fiction genres, including literary fiction, historical fiction, romance, and memoir.
