Special Monthly Teleclass: Writing for the Personal Story Market - Wednesday, March 19th at 5pm EST Presented by Dorit Sasson.

Recording available after that date.
    WEST PALM BEACH, FL, March 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The personal story writing market is a wide open genre focusing specifically on the "personal experience." Writers need to know these kinds of writing opportunities exist, which is why I'm offering a special teleclass called, "Writing for the Personal Story Market" for members of the Working Writers Club.

This market is a wide open genre that naturally lends itself to personal stories. Maybe you associate the Chicken Soup of the Soul series with these kinds of stories, but the personal story market is all encompassing. The basic "story premise" is to offer solutions to age-old problems.

Here are some genres and examples:
Writing a personal essay for a Woman's Day contest or for a contest at

Repurposing a section of your memoir you thought wouldn't sell for a online literary journal, contest or even for your blog.

Writing an article for a national magazine that features a personal story of how you overcame a problem.

Why is story writing market exploding and how can you jump on board?
In today's tough times, people are looking for solutions to ongoing personal, financial and health related problems so they can feel hopeful about themselves and their lives. Many are in some kind of professional or personal transition. At the end of the day, Editors are hungry for these personal story pieces for several reasons:
In addition to describing a problem and offering a solution, these pieces help build community -- something that our society desperately needs.
They build readership and for the writer looking for extra cash, this is good news.
You do not, I repeat, "Do Not" need to have a celebrity-type story to wow your audience. You need to simply have a story that offers a solution and speaks to your reader's heart - the key to any connection between writer and reader.
You can learn more of these techniques and tactics in the teleclass I'll be teaching on Wednesday, March 19th at 5pm EST.

Anyone with some kind of life experience can write about the journey. But not every story is worthy of publishing. To learn some of the insider strategies and tips on how to break into this market, I hope you'll join me for this call.

And here are some of the lesser known opportunities:
A Q & A interview for a local or national magazine featuring either yourself or another. The key is to highlight the "story" of overcoming the problem.

Anthologies are a great place to make your "story mark." The minute you have a book to your name, your marketing power expands and you have power to reach many different people. In fact, this is how I started marketing myself as a writer which you can read about here.

Anyone with some kind of life experience can write about the journey. But not every story is worthy of publishing. To learn some of the insider strategies and tips on how to break into this market, I hope you'll join me for this call.
