The Loft Classes

January 8-29, 2018

The Loft small logo This winter I will be taking two classes, one is to better understand the business of writing. Pitch Like a Boss is a Loft Literary Center online class on the business of writing. Topics in this four week class:

  • Polishing your presence
  • Pitching personal and critical nonfiction
  • Querying literary agents
  • Being your own boss

I have submitted my memoir to one publishing house, and have already been rejected!! I see this as a victory, and sign of progress. Just so it doesn’t become habit forming.

Instructor: Laura Goode

    • W
    • Characers
    • Pacing
    • Dialogue & sentence level word choice
    • Putting it all together

I am in the throes of rewriting the first draft of my memoir, so this class is particularly of interest and need.

January and February my partner and I are travelling around the West, testing our limits and ability to work and play. So far, play is winning. These online classes will also test how well I can discipline myself to write, learn, and play, all at the same time.
