Presented by Helen O'Neil
Whatever the genre, be it fiction or non-fiction, research is one of the most powerful tools any writer can have at their disposal. This immersive, two-hour workshop will show you how to harness, direct and exploit research using everything from the basic tools of investigative journalism to establishing the nuances of evocative detail.
Helen will guide you through a series of easy-to-follow techniques that will enable you to mount a meaningful search on any subject. Using real-life examples to demonstrate the dos and the don’ts, this course will clarify how, why and when to dive into research. It will also cover ethics and – crucially - when to stop.
This is an interactive course with special emphasis on take-home strategies. It will show you how best to use both public and private information resources. Covering everything from online archives and libraries to the potential of interviews and observation, it will hone your research techniques. It will also give you the confidence to fully exploit the information and tactics you have gathered in a way that will power and enrich your written work.
