Technique in Nonfiction: The Tools of the Trade
1 February to 22 March 2021 (Mondays)

In addition to the seven recorded sessions the instructor will have live office hours when students may ask questions in real time.
Intended Audience: All of you who are interested in really connecting with your readers; no matter what kind of reader they are. And no matter what kind of writing. It can be
