Ambitious readers, do you long to see FishbowlNY write about you for a change?

If you want to write for magazines and websites and become the sort of media player we fawn over, we suggest taking Mediabistro’s Intro to Magazine Writing Class to get a head start.

The class is taught by Sue Carswell, reporter and researcher for Vanity Fair, who was also an editor-at-large at Women’s Health, a contributing launch editor for O, The Oprah Magazine, and a correspondent for People. You’ll also learn from guest speakers including author/actress Rosa Blasi, Victoria Gotti (famous for multiple reasons!), Tina Johnson, founder of Women’s Health, and literary agent Claudia Cross.

The class begins tomorrow, so if you’re a spontaneous, last-minute sort of person, check out the details ASAP.

ESPN The Magazine Relocating To Bristol, Connecticut

You saw it here first on FishbowlNY this past July when it was reported that ESPN The Magazine was packing up their Midtown Manhattan office and heading north to the sports conglomerate’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.  Since that report the move that was originally planned for last fall has been rescheduled for June 21 and management is already preparing by doing their best Jerry Maguire impression and asking employees “Who’s coming with me?”  About 100 staffers would be required to change offices and many are unsure if they are willing to relocate.

In other news at the network, ESPN has recently been pushing to boost their appeal to female readers with the advent of ESPNw – a digital project headed by Women’s Health founder Tina Johnson.  ESPN The Magazine also has a companion title dedicated to girl’s high school athletics titled ESPN Rise for Girls.  The magazine was launched in 2007 and is released five times a year to a circulation of 500,000 readers.  Former Sports Illustrated senior editor Aimee Crawford has recently been tapped as the new editor-in-chief of Rise for Girls.
