The ExpertRating Online Writing Course (Magazine Writing) has received overwhelming positive
feedback and reviews from students around the world. Here are a few:
you suggested, I got the courage to call our local newspaper today and talked to
the editor. I had previously had sent her a short resume and some clips that had
been published in the newspaper. When I called her today and suggested 2
different articles, she told me to write them up. She wants 3 articles. One on
sugar-free desserts and the restaurants that do and do not serve them. Then she
said she wanted me to do some articles on then and now. She asked me if I wanted
to do it weekly or monthly. I said monthly. I asked her the word length and she
told me to take pictures to go with the articles. I was so excited I forgot to
ask her how much they pay. She was so excited and so was I. I am writing down
the ideas for the then and now articles. I am still looking for the places to
send a query letter from my article list. And we're just in Lesson 4!"
I jot down some goals I want to say how perfect this class was for me. I
submitted my finished article last week and the editor was thrilled with how
organized and creative it was. Not tooting my horn but yours, Eva. Having taken
this course and Writeriffic (last year) I used your advice to help me through
this (my second) assigned article. The bubble method and interviewing tips were
especially helpful. I immediately queried the editor after I submitted the
article and she accepted so I'm now working on my second paid assignment. THANK
YOU. I hope this is my start."
you get addicted to something like this?! I keep telling myself I'm finished
with the course, but I can't seem to stay out of the discussion area. It's like
when I was a little kid and hated to go to bed at night, because I was afraid
I'd miss something. What am I going to do without you all?! I'm having serious
Eva, I am so grateful for your support and instruction. I must admit I was not
too sure about the whole on line course process, but you far exceeded my
expectations. Although I have not posted all of my work, I have learned so much
and have gained some confidence. Thank you."
Eva, Thank you for a very informative class. I learned too much to note. I also
learned my writing weaknesses such as time management, fear, and a loss of
creativity from being rusty. Your biggest help to me was answering all of my
technical questions pertaining to format and content of articles. Now I can look
like a professional when I submit my work! I also deeply appreciate your
encouragement and motivation in submitting my queries and in writing in general.
I never lost my desire to write but I was at a place where I felt it was a dream
that had to be postponed for another 5-10 years. Now I am truly excited again
and I know even if I do a few "bubbles" a day, I can get there."
Shaw is a dedicated and enthusiastic instructor. The amount of time she spent
interacting with the class in the Discussion area exceeded my expectations from
other online courses I have taken. I would recommend her course without
Shaw is a wonderful instructor. From the start of the course she made a
comfortable environment which encouraged students to submit their assignments
and participate in the discussion areas. I will definitely be taking another one
of her classes."
Shaw, you are tremendous. The only thing better would be to have some one-on-one
critique of an actual writing assignment."

want to be a writer of magazine articles, be a reader and take tips
from this valuable course.
A lot of writers
want to write for magazines, but it can also be a tough industry to
break into. First, there is a specific writing format that the
magazines follow and second, it's important to know the readers for
whom you are writing for. Read as many magazines as you can and when
possible, request sample issues. Pay attention to the kinds of
articles the magazines run. If you are interested in writing organic
health articles, submitting your ideas to the magazine that features
recipes that call for canned soup and processed cheese might not
make a lot of sense.
Magazines are not going to change their basic format just because a
fantastic freelancer like you has queried them. The ExpertRating The
Craft of Magazine Writing Certification course will help you to
tailor your writing to the needs and style of the magazine.
Did you know that
you don't have to be an expert on a topic to
write a magazine article about it? And you don't
need a wall of diplomas to be a writer, either.
If you think it's necessary to have taken formal
courses in writing, journalism, or
communications to write, reconsider that idea.
In this lesson, you'll discover where ideas
originate and get started as a writer of
nonfiction magazine articles.
Friday - Lesson 02
Ask a magazine
writer about the genres available to this
profession and you'll learn about consumer
topics, informational pieces,
question-and-answer formats, true crime
articles, and a bunch more. You'll hear about
how-to articles, too. If you've been seriously
thinking about writing for magazines—which I
hope you have—you need to know about the
categories. You'll begin that investigation in
Wednesday - Lesson 03
purchased the latest market guidebook with the
writing guidelines for oodles of magazines. It's
awesome, complex, and exciting. If you feel
overwhelmed, you're not alone. Some new writers
get copies of market guidebooks and, once
they've thumbed through them, put them aside.
The books can be intimidating. But after this
lesson, you'll be a pro at selecting magazines
that want articles from you. By the end of it,
you'll be able to use an innovative outlining
tool, called The Bubble Method, which will help
you make every single topic a potential article.
Friday - Lesson 04
What is a query
letter? Do nonfiction article writers really
need them? How can you write one that will
capture the interest of editors? That's what
this lesson will discuss—giving you a foundation
for writing a query that sells your ideas.
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
In this lesson,
you'll get a quick review of production tips and
grammar rules. But the gem is a section on how
to interview the people, experts, and
celebrities that you'll be writing about.
Whatever type of article you write, you may have
occasion to interview someone. Not being an
effective interviewer will diminish your chances
of success. However, what you learn in this
lesson will make interviewing fun and easy.
Friday - Lesson 06
Money. It's the
topic of this lesson, and will be discussed in
depth. Then this lesson will debunk that
bugaboo, writer's block. Yes, writer's block is
out there, waiting to get your attention and
stop you in your tracks. But in this lesson
you're going to learn how to simply acknowledge
it and then get writing once again.
Wednesday - Lesson 07
Do you know your
reader? Most new writers say, "Hey, of course I
do." Then they look at the person as if he’s
from the planet Zod, and they seem to be saying,
"What a silly question." But unless you know who
you're writing for and write in a fashion that
captures and sustains a reader's interest,
you'll find writing for magazines a huge
challenge. So, this lesson will talk about
writing for a reader, ways to create clear and
crisp writing, and writing fillers and essays.
Friday - Lesson 08
Have you ever
wondered how magazine writers know how many
words are right for a specific topic? Have you
thought about where sidebars come from? Do you
want to gain credibility for a nonfiction book
and further your profession, cause, or company?
You'll get answers to these questions and much
more here, in this lesson.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
By the end of
this lesson, you'll be able to research topics
for articles and understand how to get yourself
into the research picture. It's nearly painless
and really fun once you know the techniques
professional magazine writers use.
Friday - Lesson 10
Do you need to
interview an expert or get a quote from one to
make your article sparkle? You probably have a
book in your house right now that would supply
what you're looking for. This lesson will talk
more about finding experts to make your articles
sizzle. Then this lesson will examine the tools
you need to self-edit. Self-editing is the
polish that turns okay writing into publishable
Wednesday - Lesson 11
research and you'll be able to sell and resell
ideas without reinventing the wheel. That's the
focus of this lesson. This lesson will also
discuss writing about theme and seasonal
articles, locating regional publications that
would be crazy not to have you write for them,
and networking with others to increase the
number of articles you sell.
