Event description

Description

The dissident Vaclev Havel believed we must “serve the truth under all circumstances as our own essential experience.” Through exercises and readings, we will explore the increasingly boundary-pushing potential of non-fiction, dipping into autobiography, essay, reportage and oral history. The course will focus on exploring your subject, developing your voice, and honing the skills of good shoe-leather journalism. Participants will be encouraged to produce their own piece of non-fiction work and get down to the nitty gritty of pitching and publishing.

Caelainn Hogan is a writer and journalist with work published in The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, The New Yorker, Harper’s Magazine, VICE, The Guardian, The Dublin Review and others.
