Last Tuesday, 31st October, I began a 6-week course with CityLit University 'Writing for Magazines'. Before it started, I was feeling both apprehensive and enthusiastic, but it turned out to be really enjoyable. The course itself runs on Google Classrooms and the online session on a Tuesday evening (17:30 - 19:30) runs on Zoom. The course is hosted by Susan Grossman. There were a total of 16 students participating.
In the first online session, we debated and discussed our personal goals and ambitions in terms of writing for magazines. Later, we were split into groups of four and encouraged to share our past experiences in terms of having had work published and relay our ambitions and aspirations which were wide and varied. Some students had seen work already published while others were yet to get into print.
Our task(s) for this week is to study examples of magazine articles and features.
