I took a Travel Writing class last fall and wrote an article on salsa dancing for one of the class assignments. The class gave me feedback, and the teacher gave me great detailed comments. I submitted my article to Time Out Magazineand they bought it!
Except....they wanted me to rewrite it as a mini weekend vacation in Harlem. Turned out everything in the salsa article was Mon-Thurs, which I didn't notice until I was in the middle of the rewrite. I wound up writing a completely new article (which actually didn't have anything to do with salsa).
As I was rewriting the article into this completely new format, I could hear my teacher’s voice and her instructions.
The article came out this past August in the Alone section.
Thanks so much for all you taught me.
