The Art of Nonfiction Storytelling: Essay Writing for Newspapers and Magazines
Book publishers today want to know if first time writers have an established platform to market their work. One way to build that platform is to get published in short form first (newspapers and magazines). In this class, we will discuss how to turn your real-life experiences into essays and reported works of less than 3,000 words.
Registration for this class CLOSES 5 PM, Thursday, February 3 2011.
Section 1: "Portrait of a Young Woman by the Artists" (February 14, 28)
Led by JEAN LAMBERTY
Women, as well as men, reflect the vitality and spirit of American individualism. Fictional characters show us people who either conform to or rebel against social restrictions and how their choices affect them. The answer to "What do women want?" is inextricably bound to other questions: What do men want? and What does society want?
