Berkeley J-School Presents:


East  Meets  West

A Gathering of Literary Journalists

November 10, 2012

East Meets West brings together top editors from the East Coast and the West, as well as an audience of 60 talented, veteran writers. The all-day event will be one long conversation about the tradition and the edges of narrative journalism, and will explore how to research and write great stories, where to publish them, and how to collaborate with agents and editors. There will be keynotes, lectures, and practical workshops.

Have you decided which workshops you’ll be attending Saturday? There is no need to make a choice now, however, some of the faculty have asked that people planning to attend their workshops read particular handouts ahead of time.


Here are links or PDFs for those handouts:


Rachel Howard’s “Beyond the Facts”

Jenn Kahn’s “Pitch Perfect”

Jon Mooallem’s “The Dark Art of Pitching”

Ted Weinstein’s “Book Idea To Book Tour”


We will have hard copies available for you Saturday of these as well as handouts for other workshops.
