Have you recently returned from an internship or study abroad in Asia?
Are you planning to go or are you thinking about going to Asia?
Or are you just generally interested in learning and writing about contemporary Asian societies, economies, politics and cultures?
If so, this two-part workshop (March 2 and March 16) will give you some 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. By registering for the March 2 date, you are agreeing to attend both dates.
Instructor: Michael Bourne
