The horizons of journalistic writing are expanding in new and exciting ways. Newspapers are opening up more and more to the dynamic style known as literary journalism or creative nonfiction. Professor John Hartsock will discuss the challenges and rewards facing those who would make the leap from hard-news to narrative style.
Hartsock has published widely on the subject of literary journalism. Recently he was named book review editor of DoubleTake magazine, a journal dedicated to publishing examples of photographic and print documentary, including literary journalism. Hartsock spent more than a decade as a newspaper and wire service reporter, starting on a small country weekly and eventually going to work for U.P.I. covering the U.S. Congress and then reporting on the collapse of the Soviet Union for several publications. He lives in Homer, N.Y. with his wife Linda and son Peter.
