Course Launch: Writing Strategies & Marketing Your Work

Teach Better Team – November 18, 2021

What a great pleasure it was to get to speak with Dave Schmittou about the course that Kari Pitstick and I co-created called Writing Strategies & Marketing Your Work. It is available in the Teach Better Academy. The course starts with helping you understand yourself better as a writer. Then we dive into tons of tips & strategies on things to consider BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER you write. These ideas are tried, tested, and true. I’ve used these ideas for years with my students to help them improve their writing & better understand the thinking process during writing. Tried, tested, and true!
