You’ve taken the magazine writing class (or maybe you haven’t), and you’re out there, trying to make it all work: seeking ideas for articles, finding markets for your pitches, putting together query letters, and dealing with editors — before, during and after assignments. Have questions? Want a little advice? Curious about how other people are doing it? Feel like exchanging ideas about what’s working and what’s not? Let’s get together and talk about it over a little wine and cheese, or simply some coffee or tea and a brownie or two. You’ll see you’re not alone — and that will help some. You’ll also leave with renewed motivation, plus a few tips and some new ideas for things to try — and that will help a lot!
