The Ins, Outs, and How-Tos of Researching – Fall 2022

Writing is only part of what it takes to craft a non-fiction piece. From delving into genealogy to accessing public records to interviewing subjects, there’s a myriad of things that go into researching. You’ll learn where to find records, how to access them, and tips on interviewing people for your story.

Liz Carey has been a freelance writer for the past five years, after a 20–plus year career as a reporter. She’s won more than 30 national, statewide, and regional awards for her writing and reporting.

This class is suitable for all levels.
