Thursday, December 6, 2018,2:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST

This workshop showcases non-fiction writing specialists Eric Deggans and Margo Hammond, as well as author and Writer in Residence at New College Sarah Gerard on how they collect their material and craft vivid stories for books, newspapers and magazines. The program is organized and will be moderated by New College Professor of Anthropology Maria D. Vesperi, a former working journalist and a trustee of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies from 1995-2015.
Eric Deggans is NPR’s first full-time TV critic, crafting stories and commentaries for the network’s shows, such as Morning Edition, Here & Now and All Things Considered, along with writing material for NPR.org.
Margo Hammond is an author, editor, memoir writing teacher, literary critic and founder of a blog called Creative Late Bloomers devoted to telling stories about creative aging.
Sarah Gerard is the author of the essay collection Sunshine State, a New York Times critics’ choice, and the novel Binary Star, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times first fiction prize.
This interactive workshop is free and open to the public — the only requirement is an interest in good stories and how they are told.
