Getting the Goods
How many times have you wondered how a novelist was able to write so convincingly about his subject, or how a nonfiction writer got access to her information. Behind almost every good story is a lot of legwork – archival research, site visits, and interviews. But where do you start? And how do you gain access to people and places you know nothing about, or where you may not be welcome? This workshop will explore strategies and techniques for finding, gathering and using the information necessary to bring a story home in its authentic entirety.
