Writing with or for someone else requires what novelist Colum McCann calls â€œradical empathy,â€ not just editorial and/or writing skill. In this three-day workshop participants will pair off and exchange stories. So bring a tape recorder and a computer or tablet — anything with a keyboard that will enable you to interview your cohort and then present your version of the story that best defines him or her. Weâ€™ll look at some examples of successful commercial collaborations and also try exercises in perception and differing viewpoints â€“ how do you â€œreadâ€ someone else, and then verbalize the results â€“ to kick off the workshop. Registration is now open. For more information, please contact Nicole Swift at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
