East Bay historian and newspaper publisher Dennis Evanosky will contrast the role of the journalist with the role of the nonfiction writer. He will address the differences between the deadline-driven reporting of news for a newspaper and the longer-term, research-driven writing for a non-fiction book. He will also speak about receiving unsolicited articles for the newspaper, and how writers can best earn a spot on a newspaper page. He will suggest best practices for writing and submitting news releases and queries for both books and newspapers. Workshop Flyer
