“What did I learn at this workshop?
- The myriad ways of approaching nonfiction writing. Almost anything can be your subject, so long as you have a passion for it
- Research can be in an archive or on google (but definitely not just on google) or it can be hanging out and getting the feel for a place or person. I love the idea of anecdotal (mother-in-law_ research
- Interviewing should never be cross-examination
- ‘ledes’ – click on that, you’ll love it
[This workshop] also reminded me of the joy of being given—and giving myself—permission to free-write.”
