Craft-Lesson Lunch: Tara FitzGerald on Sharing Our Work

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Klein Conference Room, Room A510, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall Room 510, 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

This semester, Lang’s First-Year Writing Program is hosting a series of Craft-Lesson Lunches where faculty will present dynamic and inspiring lessons in the craft of writing. These weekly lunches will run like an interactive seminar, bringing writing students and faculty together for both in-depth discussions of writing fundamentals and the more advanced lessons in what it takes to write convincing and arresting work. 

The event is open to any interested students (and faculty). Food will be provided. 

This week's craft lunch lecturer will be Tara FitzGerald on Sharing Our Work.

Tara FitzGerald is a writer, journalist, translator and educator. She was a staff correspondent for Reuters, based variously in London, Frankfurt, Bonn, Dubai, and Moscow, and also worked as a freelance journalist in Mexico City. She holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and Literary Translation from Columbia University and a BA in English Literature from Oxford University. Tara is currently working on a nonfiction book about the communities living on the shores of Central Asia’s dying Aral Sea—a phenomenon the U.N. has called “one of the world’s worst environmental disasters.” In 2016, she was awarded the Waterston Desert Writing Prize in recognition of her work on the Aral Sea.
