The Reported Imagination: Journalism Techniques for Fiction Writers
Whether writing what she knows or writing what she doesn't -- and needs to find out -- any fiction writer can learn from reporters. Reporters go out into the world and observe it closely: interviewing people; hunting down information; producing lots of copy on deadline; and subjecting themselves to rigorous editing for length and clarity. How can fiction writers turn this approach toward the practice of writing creatively?

Join us for The Reported Imagination: Journalism Techniques For Fiction Writers to explore this question and many more. This latest entry in 826michigan's How To Write Like I Do writing workshops for adults is led by V.V. Ganeshananthan, author of Love Marriage and Zell Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Michigan.

V.V. Ganeshananthan holds an M.A. from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism as well as degrees from Harvard and the Iowa Writers Workshop. She has been published widely, including in Granta and The Atlantic Monthly. Her 2008 novel Love Marriage was long-listed for the Orange Prize and included on the Washington Post Book World Best Books of 2008 list.

Workshop participants will enjoy Zingerman's coffee and pastries as they read, write, and discuss the issues raised in this workshop. Proceeds, as ever, support 826michigan's free creative writing programs for students 6-18 in Washtenaw County.
