Lamar University: Writing for Teen Magazines

All right! My class info and an interview for Lamar University is online! If you're interested in my online class, check it out here. And for a quick interview about me, check here and scroll down.

If you want to enroll, it's a 6 week online class from September 10-October 15. I'm only taking 20 students and several people have expressed interest, so sign up soon if you want to try it. Remember, you don't have to be a Texas resident to take the course.

It'll be six weeks of reading, writing and feedback from queries to non-fiction articles. You'll leave the class with a polished article and a matching query.

Okay, end of sales pitch. :)

Just wondering how this online course will work. Is it at a specific time each day for the period? Let me know -- thanks!

Hi Erica,

The course is completely open to everyone at all times. Students will have one assignment per week due each Monday by midnight. When you choose to complete the assignment is up to you. Depending on your level of comfort with the material, that will determine how much time the course will take each week. However, it shouldn't be more then 3-4 hours a week.
