Join bestselling author Mary Roach for a masterclass on making even the dullest—or strangest—topics engaging and humorous. (After all, if Mary can make us want to read a book about the human intestinal system, she can help you make your English essay a masterpiece!)
Mary will walk students through 10 ways to punch up nonfiction writing, as well as offer advice on life as a working writer. The last 15 minutes of the class will be reserved for Q&A with the author.
Registration closes when the maximum number of students (50) register, or by October 6, 2021, at 5 p.m. A wait list may be available. Registration is open to students throughout Michigan.
