Jack Hart, recently retired managing editor and writing coach at The Oregonian, will speak to a group of AAJA members on the writing process and techniques — all with the aim to make writing more efficient and less painful. Hart’s talk is the subject of his new book, “A Writer’s Coach: The Complete Guide to Writing Strategies That Work.” Hart edited two Pulitzer Prize winners at The Oregonian and was contributing editor to two others. He is also a lecturer at the 2008 Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism in Boston next month.
