Award-winning author L. E. Carmichael takes notes on about 10% of the research material she reads for a given project. About 10% of the information in those notes appears in the final book. In this session, she’ll reveal the hidden 90%, beginning with an introduction to primary and secondary sources. Next, she’ll discuss strategies for vetting our research into emotionally-loaded topics — like climate change and vaccination — in the age of Google and “fake news.” The second half of this program will give participants a chance to ask questions about any aspect of research or creative writing, receiving expert advice for approaching challenges they’ve experienced in their own work.
This interactive online program will be held on Zoom. Registration will close four hours prior to the event. Registrants will be sent the link at least one hour prior to the start time. It is recommended that participants download Zoom in advance. If you don't yet have a KFPL membership or if you need to renew one, please follow the steps on our Getting a Library Card page.
