The Laundry Line (Virtual)

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

In his workshops, Michael Pollan talks about every piece of nonfiction needing a "laundry line": a main conceptual throughline that holds together the various vignettes, reflections, and analyses that make up the piece. In this craft seminar, nonfiction writers will develop a sturdy laundry line for their current projects. We’ll spend time brainstorming pivotal moments in each piece’s structure and then craft our own laundry lines, all while discussing the difference between narrative and chronology, how to identify thematic and emotional “turns” in a piece, how to braid personal reflection with reportage and analysis, and much more.
