Event description
A 2-hour laser coaching session on ZOOM for 5 writers looking to go to the next level, hosted by top professional writer Mike Geffner.

About this Event

"Mike Geffner is, simply put, one of the finest writers - and teachers of writing - in America." - award-winning national journalist/book author Bill Minutaglio

This is a special NEXT-LEVEL coaching session limited to 5 writers of any type, covering whatever subject is holding you back. If you're a writer stuck in your career, not reaching what you feel is your potential, this is the perfect answer.

Host Mike Geffner is a retired 30-year professional journalist who published thousands of stories in countless major publications, including USA Today, Details Magazine, The Sporting News, Cigar Aficionado, The Writer, NY Post's Page Six Magazine and The Village Voice. He interviewed everyone from former President Richard Nixon to Forest Whitaker to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Derek Jeter to Sandy Koufax to Dennis Hopper. His work won him several awards, including first place for profile writing by the Society of Professional Journalists, and he was acknowledged for excellence seven times by the annual anthology The Best American Sports Writing, published by Houghton Mifflin. He's been a private writing coach and workshop host for decades, and he is the founder of both The Inspired Word spoken word/poetry series (https://InspiredWordNYC.com, @InspiredWordNYC on all social media platforms) and the popular online writing discussion forum, blog and newsletter Mike's Writing Workshop, which ended in 2010. On August 26, he signed a deal to have one of his stories made into a feature film.

Each writer gets 20 minutes of direct coaching, followed by a 20-minute group discussion. Effect: Each writer learns from the answered questions of the other. The synergy will be enlightening.

Testimonials

"Mike Geffner has been a true mentor for more than three decades. His honesty, genuine caring and passion for the writing craft and the process has been a mainstay throughout my career. I often remember his words of sage advice, because they hold even more sway in our ever-changing media world. Telling good stories with grace and humility is never out of style. And Mike is clear proof that is how to be in this world." – journalist Allan Kreda (NY Times, Bloomberg)

“When he is mentoring, Mike Geffner truly listens to the writer’s hopes and dreams. That’s what he did for me 27 years ago. He quickly assessed my skill set, then put serious thought into where my career might take me. He advised me as I set my sights on a writing job in the fashion industry. He was the first one I called after getting a job at Women’s Wear Daily (a publication commonly called “the fashion bible”). On a granular level, Mike helped me fine tune my writing style. Best of all: Mike is, by nature, thoughtful, ethical and enthusiastic, and he backs up his natural mentoring skills up with years of experience at the top of the writing field.” - writer Karen Parr-Moody (Women's Wear Daily, People, InStyle, New York Magazine)

"With all the legendary writers at the Village Voice, I always sought Mike Geffner's articles first. They were in depth, funny and eye opening. You can tell Mike is a writer who loves what he does." - award winning reporter and author Bob LeMoullec

"Mike Geffner is an exceptionally gifted and seasoned writer. Not only is he one of the best instructors in the business, but he also is intuitive in knowing how to best bring out your own writing talents. This master class is "A Must" if you want to invest in learning to write professionally." - entertainment entrepreneur Bernie Furshpan, President, Metropolitan Room NYC

"Mike Geffner's workshop was inspiring, informative, and honest. Any creative from any field should take this workshop — it's a lesson on the realities of the business, and provides helpful tips that can be used when trying to launch the next (or first!) phase of your career." - poet Rebecca E. Carvalho
