Webinar: Nonfiction in a 30-Minute Nutshell, with Susan Campbell Bartoletti

Susan Campbell Bartoletti’s webinar, part of our 30 + 10 Free Craft Webinars with Optional Paid Critiques series, was wonderful! Many insights on writing nonfiction were shared:

  • Good ideas don’t always come in the beginning
  • Push yourself to go behind the clichés
  • Discoveries you need to make: voice, subject, audience, the shape of your story
  • Look at your subject in a way that hasn’t been done before
  • On choosing subjects: what is your personal, emotional, intellectual connection to the story?
  • It’s not what you CAN write–it’s what you SHOULD write

Susan’s talk was followed by an enthusiastic and informative Q&A session. Thanks, Susan!
