No More Rejections…

No More Rejections…

Sorry, not for us.

A short sentence like the above on your returned manuscript is if nothing else better than a standard rejection and a step in the right direction. However, it’s not enough to offer insight into what you’re doing wrong and why that (or so you thought), perfect story keeps getting rejected.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if editors gave us some feedback into what we’re doing wrong?

The chances are that’s not going to happen but all is not lost.

Next month, I’m teaching a new class called Rejection Guaranteed.

We’ll go through all the common reasons for editors rejecting a manuscript and what you can do to turn these mistakes into a polished manuscript that ups the odds of a yes instead of a no.

It’s a four week class, the lessons arrive in your inbox so you don’t need to be present at any day or time.

Here’s the link for more details and how to sign up.

Hope to ‘see’ you in class.

Is Freelance Writing for You?

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a freelance writer?T

The excitement of seeing your byline on magazines that sit on shelves at Barnes and Noble or your local supermarket?

Interviewing interesting people, even famous people?

If so, you might want to check out my upcoming class, The Fearless Freelancer which starts on Monday Feb 6th. It runs for 4 weeks and you don’t have to be at your laptop at a specific day or time because the lessons are sent via e-mail.

It costs just $35, and you’ll learn all about the pros and cons, how to study markets, how to write a pitch, how to work with editors and a whole lot more. As an added bonus, I’m also offering students a chance to join my private writing group The Fearless Freelancer for the month of February.
