Writing for the Web

I recognize the irony in using a photo of a vintage typewriter for this post, but it's so much nicer than a shot of a keyboard...

I'll be teaching an evening Odyssey course through Johns Hopkins University this winter titled: Writing for the Web: A Primer for Getting Published.

There are increasingly more opportunities to get published online as print magazines fold and Web-only presences emerge. Writing for the Web and submitting online to publications is not the same as writing and submitting to print publications. Knowing the difference is important. In this course, we will talk about where publishing is going and how the online community will affect writing opportunities. This class is one part writing—how to make your prose sing for an online audience—and one part practical—how to get published or self-publish via a blog. It's a workshop for those who want to get published for fun or for profit.

This continuing education class is open to anyone. Click here to be redirected to the Odyssey home page and then click on the image of their Spring 2010 course catalog for more information and registration forms.
