Another fun Heart of Dixie Online Workshop. Learn how to make money by doing the things you love to do!
Okay... I Confess: Watch TV, Shop at the Mall and Surf the Internet to Make Money
Course Description: While it may sound like an infomercial for a get rich quick scheme, Okay… I Confess offers information and tips on how to create a source of outside income by writing short stories for the confessions and romance magazines. This two-week workshop is geared for writers who want extra income while waiting to sell their first book, are between royalty checks or simply want an extra income stream.
This course takes students step by step through writing a confession. It begins with learning the market, developing hooks and compelling story lines and structuring a story properly. By the end of the course, students should have a story ready for submission.
Additionally, participants will be given the opportunity to submit the first few pages of a story they start during the class and have the pages critiqued by published writers. Two stories will be selected toward the end of the class to receive a full critique.
