This workshop develops your individual narrative researching, reporting, interviewing, storytelling and writing skills. While most of the other journalism workshops collectively produce something (a weekly newspaper, daily online publications, radio news show, TV current affairs show), the focus in the Creative Nonfiction Workshop is on developing your individual narrative writing skills in a group setting. We do this by reading and discussing writing – your own in-progress writing as well as works by established authors – and also by vetting your story ideas, outlines and drafts with other members of the workshop group. Though we’ll focus on writing, we will also examine how the magazine business actually works and discuss the basics of freelancing for fun and profit.
