All Levels | Before you jump into a big assignment, you need to get to the matter’s roots. What are the important granular bits of a story or subject? We will learn how to examine the decisions people make—whether that’s opening a restaurant, recording a guitar part, or some other choice of import—in order to better understand how to ask them about it. What did you notice in a lyric that inspires a deep question? What can you ask a chef besides, “What do you like to eat?” Let’s get deep and let’s get specific. Clarity is the key to all communication, even a great question.
Jake Uitti is an award-winning writer whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, Alaska Airlines Magazine, The Seattle Times, Salon, Atlas Obscura, The Stranger and many other publications. When not poring over a keyboard mid-interview, Jake can be found rolling around the Emerald City in a 2003 Chevy Impala looking for the city’s best ramen or cheese pizza slice. He is the author of two books from Reedy Press: 100 Things To Do In Seattle Before You Die and Unique Eats and Eateries: Seattle. The son of two Ivy League professors, Jake grew up amidst books of poetry and French literature, but soulful meals and compelling music are his true loves.
