We will also cover the technical aspects of storytelling, providing an introduction to tools for minimal-resource and mobile audio recording.

Travel Writing for the Fearless Workshop, with Dan Szczesny

From the other side of town to the other side of the world, bringing a sense of place to your writing takes more than knowing geography: you have to get comfortable with discomfort! Immersing yourself into another culture is never easy. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to be a fish out of water—the pitfalls, dangers and joys of exploring another culture and how to turn that experience into a sellable travel essay or travelogue. Be prepared to bring your own travel adventure, or one you want to take, to the discussion. This workshop will be led by author Dan Szczesny.

This event will be held at The Ford House on the campus of SNHU.

Cost: $50 for NHWP members; $70 for non-members.

Registration: The workshop is limited to 12 students. Register now to ensure your spot.

Rewriting: A Guide For the Perplexed Workshop

You are looking at a sentence that doesn’t work, a scene that has gone flat, an essay with a weak ending and pages and pages of scribbled notes from your writers workshop. Diagnosing writing problems is easy; prescribing the right treatment is hard. So how do you cure a sick manuscript?

Join author James Patrick Kelly in this workshop that will look at specific techniques you can use to work on your narratives and questions you will have to answer to before you can proceed. We’ll consider the difference between revising on the fly during composition and re-configuring a finished draft. We’ll also discuss how to respond to comments from your editor.

This is an online workshop.

Cost: $20 for NHWP members; $30 for non-members.

Vox Pop Workshop

Vox pop,” from the Latin phrase “vox populi,” means “voice of the people.” In the context of media-making and storytelling, the vox pop is used to hear many different answers to the same question. In this workshop we’ll use the Vox Pop as an entry point to learn the concepts and methods behind interviewing, audio-recording and audio-editing for community-based research projects.

We’ll begin with an introduction to the Vermont Folklife Center’s work and our approach to cultural research and media production. Participants will be invited to discuss their own projects (prospective or in progress) and the ways VFC staff and resources might offer support or guidance. Then we’ll explore the range of tools, technologies, and methods involved in collecting audio field recordings and interviews. You’ll put your skills to work immediately as we hit the streets to practice interviewing folks around Middlebury, and then come back and begin the process of editing your Vox Pop recordings into a short audio piece. By the end of the day you will have learned the basics of interviewing, audio recording and editing. You will have a new set of skills and connections to bring to your personal or community projects.

Cost: $95 ($50 for students)

Registration: Attendance is limited to 14 participants. The registration deadline is October 12. Register online.

Please bring notebooks and pens as we will construct together a (Soma)tic poetry ritual for all workshop participants.
