Many writers find themselves on deadline with limited time, space and attention during this unprecedented crisis. The National Press Club Journalism Institute and National Association of Science Writers are partnering for a program that will offer tips for creating a writer-friendly physical space, finding your focus, and developing new tools to write in short bursts.
This program will begin with a conversation between Lane DeGregory, a Pulitzer-Prize winning enterprise writer at the Tampa Bay Times; Deborah Netburn, a science and feature writer at the Los Angeles Times; and Marla Broadfoot, a science writer with a PhD in genetics who also authored the "Ask the Scientist" column for the (Raleigh) News & Observer.
They will share:
- Techniques for writing when you have 15 minutes (or 5 minutes)
- What happens when you hit a wall with writing and how to move through and over it
- How to create and nurture focus now, amidst the pandemic
The second part of the program will be a Q&A with participants.
This program is free and open to the public.
