Write Here, Write Now! special workshops focus on techniques to be used in poetry, fiction, and many types of non-fiction.

Ever wonder what goes into writing the daily news? This workshop will explore the different processes and styles of writing that go into traditional print news reporting and offer participants opportunities to work on writing to inform an audience. Inquiry is a key part of journalism, so come with questions in mind, whether they relate to the specific experiences of a community journalist or to broader issues of journalistic ethics and practice.

About the facilitator
Gordon Lambie was reluctantly pulled into the world of community news close to a decade ago and never left. Through his work with “The Record” in Sherbrooke, Quebec, he regularly writes on issues ranging from elections to the local bake sale.

Write Here, Write Now! is supported by Bishop’s University Lifelong Learning Academy.
Bishop’s University is located on the Traditional and Unceded Territory of the Abenaki People.
