Student Quotes
"More than I expected, and worth every penny. I signed up for the course through Zoetrope.com, an online writing community, and expected to learn a bit about the basics of fiction. But with my instructor's guidance and steady encouragement, I have participated in online conversations with my classmates about the intricacies of plot, dialogue, characterization, conflicts, resolutions, and revising. I have written two short stories, as well as commented and reviewed scores more. I have learned not just the basics of fiction, but what it truly takes to cultivate that passion so that it comes alive for readers. And I have learned that none of this is easy, but attainable with lots of dedication, perseverance and faith. And that's priceless."

Dear Gotham,
 
I took Alison Stein's Food Writing One-Day Intensive class in August 2011. And it was more than worth it, although it involved a DC-NYC round-trip. For me, one of the most valuable parts of the class was when Alison evaluated our article ideas. It also helped to hear her latest successful food writing pitch, which she read to us off her smartphone. 
 
Three months later, I successfully pitched my first food writing piece to Maryland Life, a regional glossy magazine. I pitched another food-related piece—this time a personal essay—to another local magazine. It’s due out this spring in Bethesda Magazine. And just recently, I pitched yet another food article to the largest in-flight magazine in the U.S. It will come out this summer. I guess you could say I’m on a roll.
