A quick PSA for magazine writers, both professional and aspiring: if you’ve got plans for the first week of June, you might want to cancel them.
From June 2 through June 9, the two of us will lead a workshop on longform journalism at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The class, open to just five writers, will focus on both the evolving technological world of narrative non-fiction and the enduring fundamentals of great storytelling—guest lecturers include David Samuels, Evan Ratliff of The Atavist, and more. In addition to daily discussion, participants will spend the week working on a single longform piece, with an eye toward publication in a major magazine.
Applications, which include a $75 fee, are due by May 4. Sign up here.
