Unconventional Approaches to Research

My Autobiography of Carson McCullers

Can you incorporate research into your writing without boring your reader—or yourself? How do you speak to archivists and get them to give up their secrets? What are the best snacks to sneak into the library? Drawing on her work as an archivist and research into the life of Carson McCullers, Jenn Shapland will offer insights into the process of conducting research. She'll also show some unusual forms that research can take on the page in genre-bendy work by Claudia Rankine, Layli Long Soldier, Eula Biss, and others.
