No matter what your niche or expertise, writing about the world of arts and culture can be difficult if you’re not well versed in the language and editorial style of these seemingly different topics.

Over four weeks, you will learn the basics as well as helpful tricks of the trade on how to successfully and poignantly write about all facets of arts and culture. Whether you’re interested in starting your own blog or want to start freelancing for publications, the class will go into in-depth detail on how to write a standout piece and, more importantly, how to get your writing noticed.
