Read great works of journalism, then write your own.
This seminar focuses on in-depth magazine stories and non-fiction books. We’ll dissect great stories, books and book proposals for story, character arcs, dialogue, scenes, analysis, structure, transitions, verb tense, point of view and style. The goal is to figure out how memorable magazine features and narrative non-fiction books that keep your attention to the very last page are created, then to take what we’ve learned and apply it to our own work.
