On Getting Published Somehow, you go through school, learn to read and write, and never
learn about getting published. Or even think about getting published.
Somehow, getting published seems difficult or impossible. It's for
That's bunk. Is it holding you back?
The most important thing you can do with your writing skills is to use
them to see your name in print. And it's not hard to do.
In fact, it's easy–if you do it right.
The one requirement: You must have a decent command of the English language. If grammar,
spelling, sentence structure and basic writing are problems for you, stop
But if you write at work, doing letters, memos, reports and whatever
else comes your way, then it's high time you got yourself published already.
Haven't you ever read something in a magazine and said to yourself,
"This is awful. I could do better than that!" Well, you can...
publications are dying for well written, easy to read pieces on everything
you can name. Including whatever it is that interests you.
This class, based entirely on the real-life world of free-lance writing,
shows you how to finally get yourself into print.

site, and includes an optional follow-up session.
Learn how to structure an article so you can just fill in the blanks
and be done with it.

SELL IT FIRST, WRITE IT SECOND.
Get the tips and secrets it takes to succeed in this crazy business:
Secret No. 18b: Don't start out with
books. Writing a book is an enormous task–bigger than you realize. It
can overwhelm the budding writer in you, and never even get finished.
Start instead with a magazine or newspaper article. Write the same
thing you would put into your book, only less.
Three or four typewritten pages are all you need, and they can be published
right away. Authoring a book typically takes years.
A good magazine has more circulation than most books ever have, the
credentials are almost as great, and the exposure is greater. You'll
be developing credibility you need to land a good book deal when the time
comes. And if you do a series of articles, you can literally write
your book, a small piece at a time, and get paid for it all along the way!
If that makes sense to you, take the rest of the class.
Especially good for companies Many companies freely share their expertise and reap enormous benefits.
They become better known in their industry, which tends to increase market
share. The publicity value is priceless and the effect on the staff
is totally plussed–it's a no-cost employee benefit. You needn't reveal
any trade secrets, just impart valuable information. A firm whose
people are published looks good. Supporting and encouraging employees
who want to get published makes sense.
