TRUE STORY: USING JOURNALISM BASICS TO REPORT MEMOIR

  • Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

SATURDAY | APRIL 6

In this True Story workshop, participants will learn and apply basic journalism skills to their creative non-fiction, particularly memoir. Students will begin by brainstorming ideas for their own true stories. The class will be interactive, as students share ideas and get feedback from the instructor and classmates. Through exercises and workshopping, participants will hone interviewing skills, moving on to writing dialogue. The class will then cover how to access very basic public records (lawsuits, police records), search media reports, and come up with other sourcing ideas based on participants’ questions. Finally, we will spend a few minutes setting personal writing goals and discussing publication options.

Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing at Arizona State University // Saturday 9am-noon // General Registration $99, Student Registration $79
