Get Your Start as a Professional Fashion Writer

Glamorous FishbowlNY readers, have you ever wanted to write for a fashion magazine? Interview your favorite celebrity style icons? Party with gorgeous models? Have Valentino declare you his muse? Drink champagne with Karl Lagerfeld on a private jet? Have Anna Wintour cower every time you walk into a room?

We can’t guarantee any of these things will happen. But, for newbie aspiring fashion writers, one way to venture into the fold is to sign up for Mediabistro’s Intro to  Fashion Writing Course. The class is taught by Nadine Rubin Nathan, who was editor-in-chief of Elle South Africa. and contributed to Harper’s Bazaar as a fashion features editor in New York. You may not have Tom Ford on speed-dial by the end of the course, but you will have a pitch letter for a fashion feature and a collection of spec clips written for a high fashion print or online magazine.

The class begins May 23rd, so read more about the class and register here soon if you’re interested. And, FishbowlNY readers, because we are so very fond of you, you will have $50 off registration with the code FBNY50. Good luck!
