MB Alumni: Mackenzie Parks

Mackenzie_Parks.jpgWhat MB class did you take?
I took the 12-Week Novelist Class with Max Ludington.
Output
I ended up securing an agent, and just last week, I sent her my first rough draft of the entire novel!
How did you hear about the class?
I’m a Mediabistro AG member, and I always checked to see which classes were being offered.
What did you learn?
I came to the class having no experience with creative writing. I’m a journalist, and I had no idea how to go about writing something that had to be completely made up! The class really helped me to structure my ideas and start putting it down on the paper. It also helped me approach writing something that was longer than the 1200 word articles I’m used to writing!
How did the class help you with your work?
Max was great, but I also really came to rely on the comments from my classmates. They were so helpful, and provided so many different perspectives.
