About this course:

All writers conduct research, and every genre benefits from systematic query and investigation. Whether gathering family stories via oral history, re-walking Paul Revere’s path for a dystopian novel of historical fiction, shadowing a group of surfers for the sake of a narrative profile, observing open heart surgery in making the pilot of a hospital drama surge with realism, or fact-checking dates for a sociopolitical performance poem, inquiry and investigation enrich all forms of storytelling. Advanced and novice writers develop a project-specific research portfolio experientially by accessing special collections, searching physical and electronic archives, handling historical artifacts, utilizing expeditions to geographical environments, and managing living sources ethically, ready to integrate their findings into literary works. By the end of the course, writers possess a portfolio of information gathered to enhance either a project in progress or future works.
