Writing That Gets Noticed is Now an Official NYU Journalism Course

Hi everyone,

I’m so excited to share a piece of good news today with all of you that I’ve been sitting on waiting for it to become a reality!

NYU's School of Professional Studies (NYUSPSPALA)  has made Writing That Gets Noticed, a course part of the journalism certificate curriculum. See it here.

The certificate is awarded to students who successfully complete three required courses and three elective courses, which include my new class, which of course, is based on my book, Writing That Gets Noticed: Find Your Voice, Become a Better Storyteller, Get Published.

I’m so delighted to have my book the basis of an important part of the journalism curriculum. You could say I’ve been working toward this for thirty years as a journalist and magazine editor.

Have you gotten your copy yet? Order it here. And, if you love it, please leave a review on Amazon

I hope to see you in class, very soon!

Also, I had the pleasure of meeting my wonderful editor from my fantastic publisher New World Library, Georgia Hughes  in person last week when we both spoke at the Atlanta Writer’s Conference. I gave two talks at the conference, and Georgia met with potential authors. Check out my events page for my next appearance.

I didn’t take many photos but we did take this one of us together, and of course, I took my requisite photo with my name tag.
