So you really want to write

Geez, it's not easy to write a good blog post heading. It must be even more difficult to come up with one for a magazine article, let alone the whole article.

Luckily, help is on the way. If you really want to add Freelance magazine writer to your resume, you'll want to be here this Saturday (September 15th) at the Main Library at 2PM for just such a program. William Cook, who has written for a variety of well-known magazines, will let you in on a few secrets of magazine article writing. He also promises to show how to avoid being branded a hack writer.

Who knows, maybe he could even help me with crafting some decent headings.

But wait, there's more. Before, or after (but please not during) Mr. Cook's program, head to the 800's (808.02 to be more precise). That's where you'll find books like Magazine Writing: A Step-By-Step Guide for Success, and Writing for Magazines: How to Get Your Work Published in Local Newspapers and Magazines, and Teach Yourself Writing for Magazines.

Then, when you've had your first magazine article published, tell us. We'd like to be in on the beginning of your writing career.
