Finding the Story Within the Story
December 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
| Virtual Writing Workshop |
In storytelling, the heart of the story may emerge unexpectedly during the writing process. Learn how to find the heart of your story through the examination of three different pieces of work by food writer Mecca Bos: a podcast, blog post and a longer form article.
Funded by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
