Gain the Edge: Professional Development for Writers, with Lyzette Wanzer, April 13 (via Wet Ink/Zoom)

Lyzette Wanzer

TUESDAYS, APR. 13 — MAY 25  |  This intensive hands-on workshop will provide you with the career savvy you need to stand out from the crowd of writers who, though they may be talented, lack the marketplace acumen they need to boost their opportunities from good to great. Learn a comprehensive set of professional practices that translate your talent into actionable, real-world skills for escalating your literary career. Learn how to increase your chances of earning grants, landing residencies, and getting published. Over the course of this workshop, you will acquire the practices and strategies you need to reveal and take advantage of scores of opportunities for your work–skills you can put into immediate effect! Many students have garnered their first literary grant, writing conference invitation, or publication credit after completing this course.

Asynchronous learning materials for this class will be available online (via the Wet Ink platform). Scheduled class sessions will take place via Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for details.
