Stories are everywhere. Learn to tap into your curiosity and be open to the ideas no one ever told you about. Pulitzer Prize-winner Lane DeGregory will walk you through the process of finding and telling powerful stories.
As a feature writer for the last 20 years, Lane has mastered the skill of mining stories from the world around her.
Because she never covered a specific beat, Lane didn’t have the luxury of developing relationships in a specific area, so she learned how to open pathways to create a steady stream of ideas.
What Will I Learn
- The elements of a good feature story
- Interviewing and pitching ideas to your subjects

Lane DeGregory is a Pulitzer Prize-winning Tampa Bay Times feature writer who prefers writing about people in the shadows. She went to work with a 100-year-old man who still swept out a seafood warehouse, hung out beneath a bridge with a colony of sex offenders and followed a feral child who was adopted.
