Magazines, newspapers, and news sites depend on freelance writers to pitch story ideas and write compelling narratives to fill their pages. Freelance writers can make anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars per article -- and all you need to do is show you're a good writer with great ideas. With this class, learn how to craft a compelling story and break into the world of journalism. Course topics include learning how to come up with great story ideas, the art of pitching to editors, and once you have an assignment, how to report and write a compelling story that will impress. Students will come away with a fully-formed story and pitch letter to send to publications.
