We arrived back home over the weekend and it feels so good to be settling back in. Of course I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t hit the ground running (I just can’t help myself). For the past few months, I have been working with Squam to develop an online course called Pitch Perfect. I couldn’t be more excited to share this with you! When I set out to become a writer 5 years ago I had no long list of contacts, no secret “in.” Basically, I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing. I checked out dozens of books from the library and immersed myself in the art of writing the perfect pitch. In this online class, I’ll share with you what I learned and how I came to be a published author with 2 book deals and numerous articles featured in top publications. Most importantly, my writing career has allowed me to stay home with the boys while still pursuing a vibrant and creative career. I’ve taught this class three times at Squam, and each time it has sold out. For the first time ever, I’m bringing it online! In this four week course, I will be teaching the following:
Week One: Introduction to Magazine Writing
Week Two: Diving into the Query Letter
Week Three: Editing and Refining Query Letters
Week Four: Editor Etiquette, Books, Agents and more
And this class isn’t just for writers. Perhaps you want to see your artwork or photography in print- this class is for you, too! I do hope you’ll join me and learn to write the perfect pitch- you can sign up now, and the class will begin in May. That gives you plenty of time to polish your ideas and get them ready for publication. If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section and I’ll do my best to answer them for you. And as always, thanks for your support.
