All Levels | In this jump start for new and mid-career freelancers, we will open up the latest in our folders of stories, essays, and poems for constructive feedback. We’ll workshop two works (and pitches for each) per student and discuss the ways to best approach agents—literary, talent, and public speaking. In-class discussions will include writing feedback, correspondence with agents, and more. We’ll talk about generating pitch ideas, building a portfolio, talking to editors, sending cold pitches, developing editorial relationships, and networking.
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.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
