Glassboro ? Chairman of Rowan?s Journalism and Creative Writing department and Associate Professor Carl Hausman will participate in the second annual <+>World?s Largest Writing Workshop<+> at Deptford?s Barnes & Noble on Thursday October 4, 2001 at 7 p.m.

Barnes & Noble Inc. and Writer?s Digest Books will co-sponsor the event that will take place at almost 500 Barnes & Noble stores nationwide. <+>Barnes & Noble has always welcomed and encouraged new writers, offering them a place to meet, discuss their work and improve their craft,<+> said Alan Kahn, chief operating officer of Barnes & Noble, Inc.

Hausman, an author of 20 books, said he has always liked the <+>permanance and feel of a book.<+> In his latest book, Lies We Live By, Hausman uses his specialization in propaganda, logic and ethics to educate readers about deception. <+>I show people how you can use language to deceive,<+> he said.

A self-taught author, Hausman said producing 60-70 pages of copy a day, while working in broadcast news, motivated him to write books. <+>If you write just a few pages everyday, you will have a book by the end of the month,<+> he said.

Organization, structure and marketing are important factors in producing text and the focus of his lecture at the workshop.

Hausman has worked as a journalist, writer, professor and TV producer. His previous books include a Book-of-the-Month-Club alternate, several textbooks, six mass-market non-fiction books and more than 500 published newspaper and magazine articles.

At Rowan, he has introduced a journalism minor, developed four new courses and designed a new master?s program in journalism and creative writing.
