Now being held online! The internet is one of the best and the worst things to happen to writers. It makes sharing your work easier than ever—at least in theory. In fact, the internet’s bounty and breadth can make figuring out how and where to publish overwhelming and confusing.
If you’re interested in pitching a few freelance pieces or learning how to launch yourself as a full-time writer, this eight-week workshop will give you the tools you need. Each week, students will read pieces from an internet publication and then be asked to write something they think would fit with the publication’s editorial style; they will also work on a longer piece to be workshopped at the end of the course.
Class discussion will take on traditional craft matters like form and structure as well as tips and tricks for meeting editors and pitching them stories they want. The goal is for each participant to leave the class with a polished piece and ideas for venues where it can be published.To enroll, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
