Next Round of Classes Begins a Week From Wednesday!

Many of you know that I am a writing career coach. The reason that my advice is often more informed than most is that I draw from personal experience, research and interviews, and ten years of working with real live writers.

Therefore instead of serving up a bunch of generic information or borrowed knowledge, I offer a depth of insight and awareness that really only comes with time and experience.

I don’t give my advice and time away for free often. Although I do have structured ways that I give, for example through the Northwest Author Series and formal class scholarships.

The bottom line is that I prioritize my paid work and I coach my writers to do the same. There is a very good reason that my students are not the muck-slingers of Twitter or the folks who spend all day chatting on Facebook. It’s because they are busy working and getting paid to work. They are busy growing solid, lasting writing careers.

If you would like to be one of them, I am offering four upcoming six-week classes:

Writing & Publishing the Short Stuff LINK and Discover Your Specialty & Launch Your Platform LINK begin on February 22nd.

Pitching Practice LINK and 60 Ways To Flex Your Content and Prosper in Your Niche LINK begin February 23rd.

The next Micro-publishing For Mom Writers Class begins April 12th LINK. The class is already starting to fill up and space is limited. April will also be the last time that this and all of these classes are offered at the current prices.

Training groups don’t start up until August LINK, but keep in mind that classes are prerequisites to advancing up the ranks of my coaching groups. So please plan to take classes before you aspire to join one of my Dream Teams.

AWP in Chicago, Here I Come!

I will be traveling to Chicago in the beginning of MARCH to moderate a panel on The Tech-Empowered Writer: Embrace New Media, Experiment, and Earn with Jane Friedman, Robert Lee Brewer, and Seth Harwood. We are going to have some serious fun at this panel. I hope we will see you there, if you are attending AWP. Our panel is Thursday, March 1st from 1:30 – 2:45 pm in Boulevard Room A,B,C, Hilton Chicago, 2nd Floor. Please come up and say hello afterwards if you will be attending.

Because I have some extra time available while I am in Chicago, I am offering low-cost, one-on-one power up your platform consults. These prices are reduced even further for former students to the point of being ridiculously cheap. Not sure if I will ever offer these again, so if you live in the Chicago area and you would like to have a one-hour discussion about how identify your platform dynamic and use it to take your career to the next level, please email me at christina at christina katz dot com. You do not have to be a registered attendee of AWP to meet with me.

Hope to have a chance to brainstorm with you in the Windy City!

Speaking of the Windy City…I have an essay that will appear online this week and the setting of the story is in Chicago. More on that tomorrow! Have a great week!
