Know Your Workshop Leaders: Laurel Corona

September 25, 2008

Laurel Corona come on down … or step on up, such as it is. Ms. Corona will present two session at LA6, “Fact and Storytelling in Nonfiction” and “Ethics in Nonfiction Writing“. A professor at San Diego City College, Dr. Corona is the author of, most recently, Four Seasons: A Novel of Vivaldi’s Venice (Hyperion), and Until Our Last Breath (St. Martin’s), the story of Jewish partisans in Vilna, Lithuania.

But it doesn’t stop there. A trip to her website reveals that she has also freelanced twenty or so young adult stories for Lucent.

The phrase “whip-smart” comes to mind, although I still don’t know where it comes from. (Anyone? Anyone?) Writers of non-fiction and fiction alike … well, I would say you shouldn’t miss her Saturday workshops, except I’m not going to set our presenters against one another. Diverse reasons abound for people to be here, there, or somewhere else, but if you’re wondering if maybe these are workshops you might attend, stop wondering and just go, already.
