Emerson shows freelancers how to write the kind of short, snappy articles today's magazines want by dividing the work into segments of 30 minutes or fewer.

Emerson reveals:
-- how to use "throwaway time" for generating ideas and casually interviewing people
-- why short pieces can be a foot in the editorial office door
-- the types of quickly written articles freelancers can sell -- miniprofiles, one-pagers, personal essays and others
-- how to match the work to the market
-- how to expand from short articles to columns, and even books
