Good nonfiction, just like good fiction, is all about storytelling. Even when you’re reporting on the facts, your writing will be stronger when you understand how characters, conflict, drama, plot, and setting come together to create a compelling story.

In this one-hour workshop, author Amy Stewart will explore how to use storytelling methods in nonfiction writing, including plot, character, drama, setting, and conflict. She’ll discuss how those techniques can help bring the natural world to life, and answer your questions about the writing process. This class is open to anyone with an interest in nonfiction writing, with a particular emphasis on nature, science, and the outdoors.

All Big Read events are free and open to the public, thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and support from Arts Midwest.
