Freelance Writing Workshop
While there is a joy, peace, and sense of personal fulfillment in writing for ourselves, an audience of one, there can also be a feeling of wonder and connection
While there is a joy, peace, and sense of personal fulfillment in writing for ourselves, an audience of one, there can also be a feeling of wonder and connection in sharing our work with the world. But the pathway to doing so – how to sell stories so they reach a wider audience – is often elusive. In this workshop for all writers and thinkers, we’ll work to formulate a “pitch” about a topic that you want to explore, research, and report or write upon. This could be a reported piece or a personal essay. We’ll look at pitches by the workshop leader, who has spent 5 years as a freelance writer, to pull up the curtain of how people can “sell” a story from idea to pitch to finding the right publication or editor. We’ll also work on constructing our own. Come prepared with an idea or a topic, a notebook or a computer/tablet, and an openness to discuss and ask questions. All genres of writers and aspiring-writers are welcome.
Workshop will last 90 minutes
