This two-part workshop on writing better Asian blogs is for undergraduate students who have recently returned from an internship or study abroad in Asia, students that are considering going to Asia for study or work experience or students that are generally interested in learning and writing about contemporary Asian societies, economies, politics and cultures.
Michael Bourne, a writing instructor that has taught at various universities across North America including: Fordham University in New York City; American University in Washington DC; and the University of British Columbia, is leading the workshop. Michael will provide tools and techniques for identifying exciting Asia-related topics, developing an angle for your writing and finding audiences and publication venues.
The format will be a combination of instruction, discussion and small-group work and there will be short 'homework' assignments. We ask that each student brings 3-4 blog topics of interest to the first workshop.
This workshop series includes dinner and is open to any local undergraduate student that is interested in writing blogs. Seating is limited. Please click here to RSVP. Please note that if you register prior to March 2 you are agreeing to attend both dates. You will be contacted by email to confirm your attendance.
