Your Instructor, Aliya S. King

Writer, Editor & Teacher

Hello there,

I’ve written five books, including a New York Times Bestseller. That’s not braggadocios. I’m telling the absolute truth. I’ve written thousands of stories for print and digital publications—investigative journalism, think pieces, celebrity journalism, music critiques and more. I’ve successfully pitched hundreds of articles. There’s an art to pitching and I’ve mastered it.

Yes, you need this writing workshop!

I’ve successfully pitched over 500 stories in the last decade. I’ve pitched my way into Elle, Jezebel, New York, Vibe, Ebony and dozens more.
I’ll show you what works.
