Lunchtime Bite: Creative Research



Caitlin McGregor




Creative nonfiction writing allows writers to delve deeply into their chosen topics—it lets you follow your obsessions into research rabbit-holes, and wherever else they may lead. In this one-hour session, Caitlin will explore some unconventional ways to research your essay and nonfiction writing.
