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.

ABOUT EMILY: Emily White is the author of two nonfiction books: "Fast Girls: Teenage Tribes and the Myth of the Slut" (Scribner 2002) and "You Will Make Money in Your Sleep: The Story of Dana Giacchetto, Financial Adviser to the Stars" (Scribner 2007). Her journalism has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Bookforum, Spin, the Washington Post and Seattle Metropolitan among others. She was editor of the Stranger from 1995 to 2000, and before that she was a Stegner Fellow in fiction at Stanford. Her short stories have been published in the Iowa Review, the Greensboro Review, Black Clock, the Clear Cut Future and many other venues. As of this writing, she is working on a novel about a heroic skateboarding wimp from the Oregon Coast.
