What's it all about?

You really can make money with your writing. Whether you want to create your own business, add to your income, supplement your retirement, or boost what you're earning as a writer, you'll find the how-to's here.

In just six weeks, I'll share secrets, methods, and tips to help you generate income with your writing. This class includes all the practical information that so rarely gets taught in writing classes.

Now I know in most courses and social groups it's taboo to discuss money . . . but not here. We'll embrace it! Making money is the focus of the lessons.

You'll explore a dozen genres that can help you establish a sometime, part-time, or full-time career as a writer. Along the way, you'll learn methods to work faster, suffer less rejection, and bring home more bacon (even if you're a vegan like me).

You'll get facts on ghostwriting, collaboration, writing for the Web, writing for new technologies, copywriting, article and essay writing, and novel and nonfiction book writing, plus I'll give tips for finding publishers and agents. And you're going to practice different writing techniques in a safe environment as I mentor you.

Please join me for this course. Fulfilling (and lucrative) writing work is waiting for you!

What do others think?

‘I was in your magazine writing course last year.  I actually used the magazine article query letter  I wrote for a class assignment, and I sold the story. It is on the children's musical composition project called "Hey, Mozart!" and will be in the Aug/Sept issue of American Music Teacher (AMT) magazine.  Yippee!’
