Event description

Description

Tues., Jan. 24, 2-5 p.m.
New Forms of Long Form – Tim Harper – Room 442 (30 students max)

This informal, discussion-heavy workshop will review traditional long form – including how to pitch a magazine story or do a book proposal – and move on to look at the way narrative nonfiction is being redefined in terms of reporting, structure, style, and of course, technology. We’ll look at how and why some narratives always work, and how the tried and true structures are being adapted today. We’ll talk about the investments, both time and money, that make up the long-form market for readers, publishers, and writers. If there’s a piece of writing you’d like to discuss, send it in advance to the workshop leader, CUNY J-School Craft professor and writing coach Tim Harper, an editorial/publishing consultant who has done a dozen books of his own and helped dozens of other individuals and institutions produce their manuscripts and get them published.
