In today’s media-saturated environment, the art of storytelling is more important than ever. From finding compelling topics, to digging up elusive information and developing one’s own voice, to ultimately writing captivating pieces for regular and new readers alike, working as a columnist is one of the most exhilarating – and challenging – jobs in the news business.
On behalf of Copyright Clearance Center, we are very pleased to present another “Beyond the Book” program for you and your publishing and writing colleagues – The Art of Column Writing – featuring award-winning newspaper columnist Suzette Standring.
Suzette Standring is a past president of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists and author of the newly-published The Art of Column Writing: Insider Secrets from Art Buchwald, Dave Barry, Arianna Huffington, Pete Hamill and Other Great Columnists (Marion Street Press, Inc).
During this special program, Suzette offers advice from dealing with writer’s block to working with an editor and everything in between, as well as sharing her own experiences during her rise from novice writer to syndicated columnist.
Suzette Standring is a syndicated columnist with GateHouse News Service, and writes a twice-a-month Spiritual Life column for The Patriot Ledger. Her work has appeared in many publications including The Boston Globe and The Milton Times (MA). She is also a motivational speaker with a passion for teaching writing workshops.
