What is this class about?

Do you ever read features in magazines and think, "Hey, I could have written that!"? Well, you don't need to have connections with editors in order to get published. You don't even need an extensive writing portfolio. What you do need are critical thinking skills to develop innovative stories—and the discipline to research and write those articles.

It was very interesting, thank you!
Even though I haven't yet finished this class (I've just watched several of the first videos), I already feel more armed and ready to pitch magazine articles than I did before. I really enjoy Grace's teaching style and helpful examples of pitches she uses from her own experiences. She is obviously well-entrenched in the field of magazine writing; I feel like I'm in good hands. Highly recommended! --Lily Chien-Davis
A good, no nonsense starting point, esp for beginners in the US. Been freelancing for a number of years but I gleaned a few useful tips from it, esp reminders about Mediabistro & Who Pays. Maybe a few more pitch examples for more in-depth stories would be good to include.
