Hey there. You’ve found the course road map. Good job.
I realize you’re not all at the same place in your writing life. Some of you are old pros looking for a kick in the pants. Some of you are completely new to writing and don’t know a word doc from an epub (that’s okay. I didn’t either).
Wherever you are in your career, you’re in the right place.
Feel free to skip the chapters and lectures you don’t need. If you’re a Duotrope veteran and crunch numbers in your sleep, you probably don’t need to listen to me for those precious minutes of your life. But if you’ve never used a market search engine before, well, that’s a different story.
This course is designed with a broad scope in mind. Other courses will be narrower in focus. I figured you were clever enough cupcakes to sort yourselves out that way.
