Class Experience

Students will learn and practice the skills needed to prepare a piece for market, as well as analyze and learn how to submit to individual markets. 
I have been a literary magazine editor-in-chief for seven years, and I have been published in a variety of markets
Before the first session, learners will be asked to turn in a short work (5 pages or 1,250 words max) to the teacher for short feedback at least 48 hours before class. They will be expected to revise that piece between the first and second class, and can send it to the teacher for short feedback if desired. Between the second and third class learners will be asked to think about what kind of magazine their current piece is good for, and write down key words to describe it. 
Notebook/paper and pencil/pen. A handout will be given each class for reference, but printing it is optional. Internet access will be needed at times when there is no class.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
While we will be submitting to markets that are appropriate for young teenagers, there are a wide variety of subjects young teens write about, and all magazine content cannot be screened ahead of time.
