How to make one.
How to live one.
Maybe you have just discovered the joys (and challenges) of writing. Maybe you have always known you wanted to be a writer but “life” interfered. Maybe writing has been a hobby and now you want it to be a profession. Maybe you are a working journalist and now you want to move in a new direction with your writing. Maybe you want to launch a freelance career. Maybe you want to find a way to incorporate serious writing into an already crowded professional and personal life. Whatever your reasons, if you want to build a life that prioritizes writing, this two-morning seminar will help you create a path to a writing life.
Lauren Kessler (laurenkessler.com) is an American journalist and the award-winning author of 9 books who combines lively narrative with deep research to explore everything from the seemingly romantic but oh-so-gritty world of ballet to the wild, wild west of the anti-aging movement, from the stormy seas of the mother-daughter relationship to the hidden world of Alzheimer’s sufferers.
Her books have been Wall Street Journal and People magazine „best“ selections, Washington Post and Los Angles Times bestsellers. She has written for the New York Times magazine, Los Angeles Times magazine, O (Oprah) magazine and The Nation among others. Her book of essays on the art and craft of writing, Gute Texte, was just recently published in Austria.
She blogs at www.laurenchronicles.com about wellness and living an engaged life. Kessler is an international speaker and workshop leader and the creator of two graduate programs in narrative journalism at the University of Oregon.
