If you have thought about writing articles for publication in magazines, I have a wonderful resource to share.
I have been taking an online class, “The Craft of Magazine Writing”, taught by Eva Shaw. The teacher and the class are excellent, and I have learned quite a bit of useful information, and developed some new skills. The course provides several resources that I will be exploring for quite a while. The teacher, Eva Shaw is a great mentor to her students, very encouraging, insightful and knowledgeable. I can definitely see myself taking another online class from her in the future.
You can find out more about “The Craft of Magazine Writing” class at: www.ed2go.com. (While there, you can check out other classes offered by Eva Shaw, and other instructors.)
What I like most about writing is, you can do it anywhere – it is very portable. It is great for the times when you want to be creative, but can’t make it into your studio to work on a larger project. You can write down your thoughts, ideas, and project ideas, or write a draft of a blog entry to share.
When I’m at work (at a day job), I often find myself writing blog entries and ideas while on my lunch break.
If you are looking for time in your schedule to be more creative, try writing down your thoughts and ideas in your bits of free time. Who knows, you may find yourself sketching designs for projects in your notebook, too. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish in a few minutes of time, without even stepping into your studio.
Happy Writing and Creating – Denise A. Buchwalter-Losczyk
