getting started

7 Days to a Byline that Pays explains how to tell stories that audiences will read and editors will pay you to write. Dr. Michael Ray Smith, an award-winning writer, communications and media professor, and MTI board member, shared the first few chapters of his book to help you work fast, smart, and get paid for your work.

The second chapter of the book discusses:

  • examining the summary lead
  • selecting the appropriate opening
  • considering fictional techniques in nonfiction writing

Get your copy of the highlights from chapter 1 and chapter 2.
