Magazine Writing: Starting Point or Destination?

Is print dead? No way! But the industry is changing. This workshop looks at the reasons you may want to write for periodicals, which include the 3P’s (not to be confused with the C-3PO’s): profit, platform and portfolio. It’s also a great way to express your passion. (Hey, that’s a fourth P!) We’ll talk about how to capture an editor’s attention, practice crafting an effective lead, learn about different types of magazines (online and print), delve into devotional writing and discover how good interviewing skills can open doors to big-time periodicals.

What specific questions do you have that you’d like Jesse Florea to answer in his Major Morning Track?
