Literary Journalism From the Edge

Book - 1998
Rate this:
Each summer, The Banff Centre's Literary Journalism program takes in eight senior journalists and writers and charges them with a simple, if daunting task: Write about something you really care about. In this installment of the Banff Centre Press's literary journalism series, participants push boundaries and arrive at some of their most passionate work. Taking Risks collects the work of twelve accomplished journalists on a range of subjects as diverse as their voices: the curious nature of the celebrity interview, writers "borrowing" material from other writers, the extinction of Aboriginal languages, a jazz musician's troubled life. Offering unique insights, the writers take risks with style and substance, laying themselves on the line with an intimacy seldom seen in contemporary journalism.
