I’m excited to join fellow writers Candy Arrington, Dorri Olds, and Rudri Patel for a panel discussion on “Tackling Tough Topics” at this year’s Association of Journalists and Authors Conference. What’s our session all about?
Though many writers feel compelled to write about a difficult life circumstance, loss, or grief, it’s important to know how to structure content, what to include and what to omit. In writing tough topics, you have the opportunity to reach those who are hurting, feel alienated and alone, and are searching for ways to heal their pain. No matter what the situation, there are common threads that reach across gender, cultural, and ethical barriers to foster hope and healing…Learn methods to craft your tough topic by using the power of story, providing practical suggestions for coping and moving forward, and writing with a level of transparency that touches hearts and inspires hope.
This session will be offered Saturday, May 6, which is Non-members Day at the conference. If you’re just getting started as a writer, the Saturday workshops should be inspiring and informative.
