Join Michigan Writers as we celebrate writers and writing at our Fall Social on Sunday, Nov. 11, 4-6 pm, at The Workshop Brewing Co. in Traverse City.
Please join us in celebrating the launch of our Summer / Fall 2018 issue! It’s always a fun afternoon of contributors reading their work.
In this workshop, instead of treating interviews as sources of often-unreliable factual information, we’ll approach interviews as invaluable, even sacred opportunities for people to tell us the stories that explain who they are and the lives they have lived. We’ll put a priority upon humanistic and journalistic approaches over those of social science, focusing not on the “informant” but on the person. Instead of going into an interview with long lists of fact-soliciting questions, our preparation and practice will rely upon careful listening and the sympathetic pursuit of the stories people use to make sense of their lives.
Please join us for the launch of the Spring 2017 Dunes Review on Saturday, April 29.
Playing off of the techniques of improv comedians, in this workshop you’ll learn numerous ways to get something going “out of nowhere” and never have to worry about writer’s block again!
