What course did you take?Media Bistro Boot Camp for Journalists with JoBeth McDaniel in April 2003
Output:An essay I wrote for class was published in The Seattle Times. It will also appear in an anthology called Stories to Live By, which is due out later this month.
How did you find the class?I found it online at
What did you learn from it?
I learned how to craft a great pitch letter. And as a great bonus, I connected with other writers in Atlanta, and we’ve stayed in touch.
What did you glean from the class that specifically helped you with your article?
The class workshoped the essay I wrote, so that definitely helped me with the story. Their encouragement gave me the push I needed to get it out the door. JoBeth specifically recommended I send the piece to Travelers’ Tales, the company that’s publishing it in their anthology.
