LIN’S AFTERNOON CLASSES

Selling What You Write                                                                                                     

If you want to get published, you need to know how to market your manuscripts. Learn how to find the right markets for them, submit them so editors will read them, and write irresistible query letters and proposals. We’ll discuss tips for multiplying your sales.

Writing Bible Study Guides                                                                                   

Tap into the growing small group and personal study market with Bible study guides. Learn key principles for studying the Bible and how to translate them into effective discussion questions.

How to Please an Editor

Editors are the necessary links between you and your readers. They’re your allies, not your enemies. Find out how to make the author/editor relationship work smoothly, so you can get published (and continue to do so) and be the kind of writer editors like to work with and give assignments to. Taught by someone who works on both sides of the desk.

Understanding a Magazine as Well as the Editor Does                 

The secret to selling articles is a thorough understanding of individual magazines. Learn how to analyze a magazine and its articles to increase your sales.
