Description

Memorable writing requires deep interview abilities, heavy research, and wise judgment. Smart journalism skills can turn your good nonfiction more honest, confident, and real to the world.

It will be geared towards introverts, and we'd love to share our experience as veteran journalists to strong non-fiction writers.
