"Exploring New Forms of Non-Fiction Storytelling" with Rebecca Burns
Friday, March 16, 2018, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Roswell City Hall, Room 220

In this workshop, Rebecca Burns will focus on the way she looks for details and specifics in writing history to make it come "alive." Participants will enjoy hearing about the author’s experiences in doing extensive research and how she draws vivid detail from her sources, including photographs, news footage, popular music of the era and vintage findings from gossip columns to tourist souvenirs. She will talk about the craftsmanship behind reporting, writing and storytelling and the importance of providing deep context.
