Writing About Adventure - For a Living
- In David's own words: "In this short talk, I’ll tell stories about the vicissitudes and rewards of trying to make a living the way I have. I’ll speculate about whether such a career is still feasible in the age of online blogs and short attention spans. I’ll tell tales about the careers of my colleagues (many of them freelance photographers) and of those I’ve tried to mentor. I’ll try to point the way toward the future for writers about adventure. My talk will be followed by a Q & A [with Alex] for those in the audience who seek specific advice or have war stories of their own to relate."
- Saturday at Schaefer Center: 5:30-7:00 p.m.: Alone on the Wall book signing with author David Roberts and Alex Honnold.
