All Levels | Take home a tool bag of reporting tricks to help you deepen the writing of your novel. Rebecca Clarren shares the hard-won lessons learned from more than twenty years of investigative reporting that she applied in the writing of her own novel Kickdown, which was short-listed for the PEN/Bellwether Prize. For those of you who are feeling stuck at any level of the writing process, this workshop will teach you how to stretch beyond the limits of your known-world, research like a journalist, and polish your own prose like a seasoned editor. Students are asked to bring a laptop to class.
