Good writing can seem magical, but only happens through hard work and mastery of craft.
A Pulitzer Prize winning journalist – and native of tiny Pulaski, Wisconsin – shares lessons learned during her career as a true storyteller. Among them: There are no small stories. The most creative writing is built on a foundation of discipline. All good writing comes from good reporting. All writers are insecure. And sometimes even the best writers suck.

Join Jacqui for an engaging discussion of What It Takes. She’ll offer some go-to tools to turn craft into art, and answer your questions about a seven-continent career in which she wrote about everything from beauty pageants to popes, AIDS to the Olympics, dogsled expeditions to refugee camps, labor disputes to social justice movements. Not to mention a few hundred planning commission meetings along the way.
