Want to write and publish nonfiction magazine and newspaper features on today's hot topics, interesting people, compelling ideas, and alluring places? This two-day course, taught by a freelance writer for the New York Times and national and local magazines, will explore the process from the beginning: How to get ideas, research markets, write queries and pitch ideas to an editor, and craft a magazine article from beginning to effective ending. We'll refer to selections from top magazine stories and Follow the Story by James B. Stewart.

The class is aimed at people who want to write for a living or to write articles as part of their existing work. We'll have plenty of time for Q & A and making pitches. Students will have an opportunity to submit query letters or drafts of articles during the week between class sessions.
