Revising and Pitching Your Essays, with Kenneth Rosen

Take a seed and let it grow. Come prepared to this two-week nonfiction intensive workshop with 3 – 5 ideas for longform pieces of writing. Using both your ideas and published examples, we will go over best practices for what to look for as a writer and a writer-reader, understanding how to view a piece of work through the eyes of various editors and publications. We’ll learn how to cast your ideas to the widest audience, then shape and devise a pitching/submission strategy to get your work in print!  With up to two revisions per student and a unique approach to magazine/journal submissions, students will get individualized, hands-on advice and intensive professional editing from a widely published professional journalist.  

This workshop will be held online. 

Two Saturdays, September 10 & 17, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($250)
