Research enlivens story, and facts enliven fiction. This presentation will discuss how to teach research to creative writers in a way that is effective and engaging. To do so, it is important to frame research in a way that is appealing to creative audiences, demonstrates the many uses of research for enlivening fiction, and ties our instruction directly to student's projects and specific information needs. This presentation will also provide demonstrations of potential teaching strategies to draw creative writers into the research process and stimulate their desire to discover. Analyzed data collected from surveys sent out to creative writers will form a basis for the recommendations made throughout this presentation.
