When confronting a tragedy, we might ask ourselves several questions: What is going on over there? How can this be happening? Why doesn't someone do something? These are questions often asked by writers who look at society with an eye for tackling tough issues and standing up for what is right. In this course, writers will explore society’s dark side. Pope Duarte will guide students through techniques for research, interviewing, and getting to the heart of a story, as these skills will be an open door for creating heart-warming, healing works that make a difference for generations to come, offering hope in the midst of despair. Participants will consider books that explore the human experience and deliver it with precision and power, often remain a part of our global memory—forever.
