Do you have an idea for an article that you'd love to publish in a magazine? Learning how to get published in magazines isn't hard, but there are some things you need to know to increase your chances of success. For many inexperienced writers, just the thought of submitting a story for publication is a little "scary" because they don't know the basics of how to submit their ideas. Join professional writer, Jennifer Pinkley, to learn about publishing guidelines, submission requirements, query letters, and many tips on how to successfully submit your story ideas for publication. | $30

How to Edit & Organize Photos C62M1407 | 07/21/14 - 07/22/14 | 09:00am - 12:00pm
Learn a simple, convenient, and free way to organize and edit your photos in this class. Although there are many similar tools, we will use Picasa in this class as our tool to teach you to organize your photos into folders to find them quickly and easily. In addition, you'll learn to crop, straighten, remove red eye, tweak color and exposure, and adjust color cast and white balance-and even add special effects. Picasa permits the addition of text to your photo, which is handy for adding captions or comments! | $60

However, you may already possess the skills to succeed without this basics course.

    Listed below are essential skills needed for success in the IT courses offered:

  • Ability to select portions of text and copy/paste to another position in the same document, another document, or to delete.
  • Ability to find and open a document.
  • Basic formatting skills, fonts and font size, and page set-up (margins, for instance).
  • Ability to save a document to the desired location. Understand the difference between save and save as.
  • File handling abilities: copy, move, and delete a file; create a folder.
