Book  publishers today want to know if first time writers have an established  platform
to market their work. One way to build that platform is to get  published in short
form first (newspapers and magazines). In this  class, we will discuss how to turn
your real-life experiences into  essays and reported works of less than 3,000 words.

Registration for this class CLOSES 5 PM,
Thursday,  February 3 2011.

$165 Members / $195 Others.

*Vort Ting

is Danish for "Our Thing"

Section 1: "Portrait of a Young Woman by the Artists"
(February 14, 28)

Led by JEAN LAMBERTY

Women, as well as men, reflect the vitality and spirit of American  individualism.
Fictional characters show us people who either conform to  or rebel against social
restrictions and how their choices affect them.  The answer to "What do women want?"
is inextricably bound to other  questions: What do men want? and What does society
want?

Required Course Materials:

Daisy Miller by Henry James, Part 1, Chap. 1; Part 1, Chap. 2; Part 2, Chap. 3;
