Speaking Program: Writing about Birds
As the author of a dozen published books about birds, a columnist for BirdWatching magazine, former science editor at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and writer/producer of a long-running radio program about birds, Laura has had a long track record in writing about birds. She’s also won the National Outdoor Book Award, the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award, and grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council. She’s taught Elderhostel writing classes and hour- and day-long workshops about writing for different college, school, and library-sponsored groups. This program can be tailored to individual groups to focus on gathering ideas, researching, writing, and publishing.
