Write What You DON’T Know

Instructor(s): Caren Pita

Course Code: JY16-F43
Everyone always says, “Write what you know,” but it’s much more fun to write what you find interesting, even if it is way outside your experience. Writers like Mary Pope Osbourne and Jean Craighead George never stop at what they have in their heads, but explore the places they’d like to go, meet the people they wish they could have met, survive challenges that the most bizarre reality TV producers just dream about. You can too! Research is the door that leads EVERYWHERE, but it’s not just a Google search or a trip to the local library. It’s coaxing stories out of others, asking questions, peeking behind curtains, and seeing the world. A field trip or class guest will be scheduled based on student interests.
