Annette McGivney // Writing Workshop: You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: How to Write Creative Nonfiction
WED Jan 16, 3-5 pm, Teton County Library Ordway Auditorium
Real life is often stranger than fiction. But how to do you turn a set of facts or personal experience into an engaging story? In this workshop, Annette McGivney will share wisdom and skills she has gained during three decades working as a journalist writing narrative magazines articles and books. Genres touched on will include memoir, outdoor adventure and true crime. Participants will learn techniques for conducting in-depth research, journalistic interviews and transforming factual material into writing that reads like a novel with narrative descriptions, character development and an engaging story structure.
