Simple as it sounds, there’s a subtle art to drawing out stories and personalities. Wall Street Journal columnist Elizabeth Bernstein leads writers and storytellers through tips for getting people to open up about their relationships and their lives—and how to then write those stories with sensitivity. Bernstein notes that her classes extend beyond writers, touching on the universal value of talking to strangers. Connecting with strangers can improve mental wellbeing, combat loneliness, and enrich art in any form.
