Celebrities are the most important people in our society. Therefore, celebrity profiling is the highest form of journalism. Can’t argue with that logic! Mediabistro.com, the Jack-and-Ennis to this blog’s herd of sheep, is offering an introductory seminar on writing celebrity profiles Thursday night in West Hollywood. It’s taught by New York / Rolling Stone contributor Vanessa Grigoriadis, who’s profiled more celebrities than I’ve dented fenders. And that’s a lot.
This is an intermediate class, so you need to have at least a year of journalism experience or, say, three years of writing for Daily Candy. More info here.
