Are the stories about our lives enough? What’s the purpose of research when writing? How can we bring the world (pop culture, current events, local and world headlines) into our work to add depth, nuance and metaphor, and to place our stories in time?
In this class, we will discuss the purpose of research, and delve into methods we can use to focus our research and avoid going down the research rabbit hole, an all too easy thing to do (trust me, I know!).
We will also dig into why and how research can increase our understanding of people, topics and ideas, and even ourselves and our place in the world.
