Writing and Pitching Nonfiction Articles, with Kenneth Rosen

Getting published in a magazine or journal takes creativity, insight, initiative, and above all: patience. From longform features to articles to short essays, this morning master class will help students conceive, workshop, and learn how to pitch creative nonfiction writing for regional and national publications.  Participants will be invited to send up to 5 pages of writing for individual feedback one week before the workshop.  We’ll explore ideas and tips for writing/revising nonfiction pieces that sell, then discuss strategies for researching and pitching articles to agents and editors.   

Monday, November 9, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm  ($195)
