Mediabistro Presents ‘Boot Camp for Long-Form Journalism’

Want to write something long? Of course you do. But long is hard. Fortunately, mediabistro.com, the knight in shining armor to FishbowlLA’s damsel in distress, is offering an eight-week class on long-form journalism. It’s taught by David Hochman, who writes, often lengthily, for Esquire, The New York Times, Travel + Leisure, Harper’s Bazaar, Details, TV Guide, T+L Golf, Outside, Men’s Journal, Food & Wine, and many other publications. Best of all, you’ll come out of the class with a ready-to-publish 2,000-5,000 word narrative. I’ll be taking the class and writing a long-form piece of immersive journalism on my experiences in the class. Because I understand that ‘meta’ is really hot now.

The class begins on Wed., October 19. More info here.
