The Art of Non-Fiction

Non-fiction| with Mark Kurlansky


In this four-day class, Mark will work closely with non-fiction writers on issues including:

  • Zeroing in on your topic—finding the fascination that lies hidden in plain sight.
  • Efficient research techniques to find gems of factual reality.
  • Meeting the challenges of nonfiction publishing
