How To Write Like I Do with Emily White
In this one night class, Emily White will talk about the line between fiction and nonfictionthe way both require imagination, research, voice, and transparency. As a writer who has crossed over the border between real and imaginary many times, White will share anecdotes about the way the subject of a long, reported magazine story eventually became a character in a novel, and the way the seeds of short stories grew into factual pieces of investigative journalism.
