If you live in the NYC area, you can get coaching from longtime journalist and author Jennifer Keishin Armstrong—right in her living room!
At Jennifer’s Getting Published “living room workshop,” you’ll hone an idea, finish a piece, and complete a targeted pitch before the class is through.
“Jennifer’s teaching style was great! She infused her own background and experience in pop culture and journalism into every class, making it fun and fast-paced. She challenged the class with assignments that got our writing juices flowing. She was also very accessible and really cared about us as fledging writers. I would definitely take another class with her.” —Lori Gaon, Article Writing student
From Jennifer’s website…
I’ll be organizing a fall 2013 “living room workshop” in my apartment in the East Village area of NYC. We’ll be scheduling “Getting Published, from Pitch to Finished Project” based on the needs of those who sign up, but we’ll meet for 10 weeks starting in September, three hours per weekly session.
The class will work like this:
1. Everyone will come to the first meeting with a three-minute (or shorter) oral pitch for a published piece of nonfiction—an essay or an article. You’ll present it to the group for friendly feedback that helps you shape it into a one-page written pitch by the next class.
2. From there, everyone will work on the project for the remainder of class with guidance from me, as well as feedback from me and your peers.
3. The final two weeks we’ll spend honing your pitch once again, this time into an official pitch letter. We’ll also help you to target it to appropriate editors at appropriate publications.
4. You will leave the workshop with a finished piece as well as a finished pitch.
Price is $399 for the entire 10-week class.
