The Thursday Intensive Session, "Feature Writing for More Money," with Eric Butterman has OPENINGS AVAILABLE.

This is how he describes his session, "Feature writing has long been a key part in having a successful writing career. Whether it's getting top sources or interviewing well, it can feel like a struggle. Well, struggle no more. We'll break down every aspect of the process to complete a quality article in a lot less time. Turn half-hour interviews into 15 minutes, learn exercises that turn a procrastinator into a pro, and become the confident writer you've always wanted to be."
