If you believe writers must suffer for their art, as so-called writing gurus insist, you’ve accepted a myth. In this highly interactive course, you’ll master the insider methods of writing for personal satisfaction or for publication. You’ll increase your creativity, beat writer’s block, manage time, and know how to pitch ideas to publishers, agents, and editors.
You’ll learn about the business side of writing, including contracts, releases, deductions, and invoices. You'll investigate the genres that will launch your career or increase your satisfaction with your own advanced writing.
Through comprehensive and progressively challenging writing assignments and innovative ways to explore creativity, you’ll increase your self-confidence, overcome obstacles, and understand what it takes to be a writer.
The instructor is an author of more than 60 books and over 1000 magazine articles, and has been writing for publication for over twenty years. In this course, she will share how writing can increase your self-confidence, can help restore your self-respect, and how it can become a full-time career, second career or contribute to your retirement.
In Writeriffic 2, you’ll learn to be the writer of your dreams and have fun, too.
