By this time tomorrow, I’ll be in Washington, D.C. to attend the Write Your Heart Out, Washington event on Saturday morning. Anyone else going to this writing conference? If so, I hope you’ll say hello. I’m incredibly excited for this.
"…readers not only want to know what we know, they also want to know how we’ve come to know it, and the practical limits of our knowledge."
"When you’re young, you look at television and think, ‘There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down.’ But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing though. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth."
On this day 40 years ago, the Washington Post won a Pulitzer for its coverage of the Watergate scandal. In a little more than a week, I'll be attending this conference where Bob Woodward and others will be talking about writing.
I cannot fully explain how excited I am to attend Write Your Heart Out, Washington.
If you’re planning on going to this event, let me know. I’ll see you there on May 18.
Decided to reblog this link over here as well in case any followers of Pressing Matters will be attending this event. If so, send me a message. Hope to see you journalism guys and gals there.
