Figuring out how to build a writing career can be daunting. Sometimes it can feel like everything you need to know is a secret that only a select group of people have access to. In this business-oriented class, you’ll learn how to use your skills and orient yourself toward making some money and getting published, focusing on practical tips and resources. We’ll focus on all of the tools you need, including the art of the pitch, best practices for working with editors, and staying organized.
