Diving In: The Role of Research in Creative Nonfiction
In this class, we will discuss the role research plays in the writing process, specifically creative nonfiction and we will delve into and practice methods we can use to focus our research and avoid going down the research "rabbit hole". We will also dig into why and how research can increase our understanding of people, topics and ideas, and even ourselves and our place in the written world we're creating.
This session is ideal for nonfiction writers but discussion and tools can be applied to all genres!
This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
