Abstract:
Newspaper, magazine, and web editors are desperate for new voices, and anyone, in any field, can break in ... Over the last two decades, writing professor Susan Shapiro has taught more than 25,000 students of all ages and backgrounds at NYU, Columbia, Temple, the New School, and Harvard University. Now in the BYLINE BIBLE she reveals the wildly popular 'Instant Gratification Takes Too Long" technique she's perfected, sharing how to land impressive clips to start or re-launch your career. The author walks you through every stage of crafting and selling short nonfiction pieces. She shows you how to spot trendy subjects, where to start, finish, and edit, and divulges specific steps to submit work, have it accepted, get paid, and see your byline in your favorite publication in lightning speed.
