Teton County Library
Ordway Auditorium (Both sides, entire auditorium)

Event Details

Nobody likes to read a play by play--no matter how epic the adventure. If told well, going for a walk to the corner can be a captivating tale, and all the more so if it contains your own unique voice and observations for the reader. We'll explore how to find your angle, when to change it, and how to stay on track - whether it's a pitch to try for a story assignment, an essay, or a long form feature. And - a bit about how to reach out to a publication if you are totally new to the game. 

Brigid Mander is a skier, adventurer, and writer based in Jackson, Wyo. She turned dedicated ski bumming into a full-time writing career, and currently contributes regularly to varied publications such as Backcountry Magazine, Mountain Outlaw, and the Wall Street Journal.
