Day Job to Dream Job: Writing for a Living

Introductory / Intermediate | Discover how to implement strategies for a nonfiction writing career. Using in-class exercises and assignments, we’ll study markets, come up with ideas, learn how to interview, write to specifications, and generate lots of business. Assignments will be tailored according to previous experience and personal interest, and will include essays, op-eds, copy and ghostwriting, shorts/ FOBs, and articles.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
