"I learned much, much more from you in Article Writing Masterclass than I did taking a ‘Writing for Magazines’ class at Cornell! I’m working on an article now that I’m sure will find a home in a nice, juicy paying market, thanks to your wonderful advice!"

Writer Thomas HIll

"I got two clients during this class! At a career-oriented website I pitched, the editor said, 'I think this idea will work on our blog,' and I'm getting $200 for articles in their email blasts, after a free tryout. I honestly wish I'd taken this course sooner! It's helped me analyze publications more efficiently, which helps me get more assignments faster."
