A local freelance journalist uses a recent published story as a case study to discuss: Where story ideas come from, how to pitch a story to an editor, what to do when you get an assignment, how to approach and research a topic, how to find resources, how to approach subjects and conduct an interview, writing and revising the story, fact-checking, and more. Open to published and pre-published writers, who should bring ideas, writing samples, and questions for informal discussion.
