mediabistro presents: Introduction to Writing Celebrity Profiles

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.
