Literary Journalism is much more than who, what, when, where and why. We might call it a lot of things, but literary journalism is rooted in the writer’s ability to home in on a timely question and conduct interviews, do research and immerse herself in a community, if only for a moment. This four-week workshop will explore what literary journalism looks like and will lead to production of new work about a community that matters to you.
