If you harbour a desire to see your name in print – and maybe even on the cover of your favourite knitting magazine – this workshop is for you. Karie Westermann will take you through how to answer calls for magazine submissions. This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn to work with mood boards, figure out how to format eye-catching submissions, and gain insight into what commissioning editors look for.
Skills needed: Basic word-formatting knowledge.
Materials to bring: A blocked swatch (see homework); pen and paper
Any “homework”?: Students will be sent a PDF with instructions on how to access a Pinterest board approximately 2 weeks before the class & will need to bring one basic design idea & a related swatch to the class. The swatch should be at least 4" x 4"/10cm x 10cm and blocked. The type of yarn used does not matter.
