Event description

Description

Picture this: You are sitting in front of your computer and the cursor is blinking on the blank page. You have a notebook (or several) filled with notes, quotes and color. Now, the hard part begins. How do you make your writing sing? Let's ask the experts and get inspired.

Mary Schmich is a columnist for the Chicago Tribune who won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. Her column, which she has written since 1992, appears Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. A Georgia native, she was previously a Tribune national correspondent based in Atlanta. She also teaches yoga, plays mandolin and piano, and with fellow columnist Eric Zorn hosts an annual holiday singalong at the Old Town School of Folk Music.

Bob Secter is the Director of Investigations for the BGA. He has previously served as a political reporter and Political Editor of The Chicago Tribune, a national, Southeast Asian and congressional correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, and the Springfield bureau chief for the now defunct Chicago Daily News.

Homework: Please take the time to read the following stories, so you can follow along.
