Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions
As a published author on science, history and travel, including the
book, Gingseng, The Divine Root, David A. Taylor will speak on crafting
narratives in the areas of science, history and travel -- and finding
markets where they overlap.BIO David Taylor explores
revealing connections between people and their worlds. His articles
have appeared in Smithsonian, The Washington Post, The Village Voice,
Outside, The Christian Science Monitor, Forbes, and The Atlantic
Unbound. He has written award-winning documentaries for PBS, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel and others.
His new book of fiction, just released, is the award-winning collection Success: Stories.
David is now finishing work on a documentary film entitled Soul of A
People: Voices from the Writers' Project. Ralph Ellison, John Cheever,
Richard Wright, Margaret Walker, and Saul Bellow were young and hungry
when they took jobs on an emergency relief effort in the 1930s. This
film gives the untold story of what they uncovered about America and
what it means now.
David teaches Science Writing at The Writerï¿½s Center in Bethesda, MD.
The basic workshop explores how people with a technical background can
begin writing for broad audiences and how non-scientists can weave
scientific thought into their writing in engaging ways. The advanced
workshop uses exercises and examples, with a focus on longer pieces,
working with editors, conducting lively interviews, and managing a
portfolio of topics. For information about registering for the Spring 2009 workshop, visit firstname.lastname@example.org
