CKELLY HIGH RES

I mentioned this here a while ago.

Now we’re ready to go!

As some of you already know, I’m an award-winning journalist who’s published two non-fiction books of national reporting and writes frequently for The New York Times. My work has appeared in publications in Canada, (Chatelaine, Flare, Toronto Life, Maisonneuve , etc.), the U.S., France, Ireland and New Zealand, including The Wall Street Journal, VSD, Marie Claire and Ladies Home Journal.

I’ve also taught journalism at Concordia University in Montreal, New York University, Pace University and The New York Times Student Journalism Institute. I also recently taught the first webinar here at Kristen Lamb’s online conference, WANACON.

I’m offering six webinars:

Think Like a Reporter

Finding and Developing Story Ideas

Growing Your Blog

Writing for A-List Editors

You, Inc: The Business of Freelancing 

Crafting The Personal Essay.

Each is 90 minutes in length, half of which is saved for your questions and comments.

They range in price from $100 to $200; details, prices, dates and sign-up are all here. After you’ve registered, I’ll email you each directly with the sign-in location for the webinar.

The first is Sunday November 3 at 4:00 pm. Eastern time. 

Finding and Developing Story Ideas will be helpful to anyone who’s freelancing, or hopes to. I’ll talk about which ideas are best suited to websites, newspapers, magazines or non-fiction books — sometimes all of these.

Three recent students say:

“By any metric, Caitlin soars as a teacher, especially her sincerity and kindness. Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. Caitlin embodies that – with the experiences she can share, the skills she can teach, and lives she can change.”

– Amer Taleb

 

Caitlin is an exemplary mentor and teacher. She doesn’t just provide excellent training for the exacting standards and requirements of journalism and authorship, but shares her experience and knowledge readily, offering real, pertinent information and how to use it.

 

She invests herself in those she teaches, helping them to develop the wide array of skills and instincts they will need to succeed in any area.”

– Cadence Woodland

“I enjoyed Caitlin’s presentation very much. As a journalist with only a few years experience, I appreciated her willingness to share her expertise and experiential wisdom. She made herself available for questions afterwards, which was particularly helpful. Her experience was insightful. If you have a chance to take a class with her, don’t hesitate. Great value.”

– Lisa Hall-Wilson

I hope you’ll sign up — and please spread the word!

  1. I would absolutely love to join one of those, but that price tag is just more than I can swing as a student, parent, etc. during the holidays.

  2. Reblogged this on themodernidiot and commented:
    Struggling to get published? Looking to improve your skills as a writer? Want to learn the business from the inside in order to GET inside? Then I highly recommend connecting with Caitlyn. She can help you stop grinding and start winning.

  3. I love this idea! Absolutely brilliant! I’ve been wanting a way to learn more about writing/publishing/freelancing/etc from a trusted source — someone who’s been there, done it, knows the business, has been published in some of the most prestigious magazines/newspapers/publications in the world, and has a proven track record. What a great way for me to get all that without dedicating the time or money (and gambling on the quality) of night classes at a university.

    Flexible, affordable, and accessible all the way from New Zealand — I love it! I just signed up and am looking forward to the first class!

  4. If I could afford to, I’d take the Growing Your Blog webinar. Unfortunately I’m poor, but I’ll let anyone who’s interested know.

  5. Someday…but the time is a factor for me. 10:00pm it would be for me, on a school night, eeek! I’m such a wimp.

    • All webinars are on the weekend — Saturdays and Sundays — which I chose specifically for European readers like yourself. And earlier gets challenging for people in different time zones. I hope you’ll re-consider — or at least share this with anyone who might find them useful.

  6. […] up, the fabulous Caitlin Kelly is offering a series of webinar courses to develop or hone your skills as a writer or freelancer. I seriously cannot recommend her tutelage […]
