From attendees of Cara’s Feature Writing seminar at Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership:

“Cara is an expert in her field, and has a supportive, engaging teaching style. She helped make the magazine world less of a mystery, and was incredibly insightful about our story ideas. I left the weekend with creative ideas for stories that I did not have before.”

“I thought Cara did a truly tremendous job of proving a clear sense of what magazines are looking for in feature queries. I left the module with a solid understanding of exactly what steps need to be taken to achieve this goal. Cara’s style of presentation was very warm, inclusive, and inspriation. I felt ’safe’ and energized at the same time.”

From attendees of Cara’s Writing for Women’s Magazines class at mediabistro.com:

“Cara Birnbaum is as smart and savvy as you would expect someone who has written articles for all the major women’s mags to be — but far more approachable and funny. The level of time and attention that she gave to each student’s work was truly exceptional. More than anything, this class made me realize just how close a career in freelance journalism really is.”

“Smart, seasoned and easy to approach. She went out of her way to help and was always available.”

“Cara not only helped me learn the basics of writing for women’s magazines, she also took extra time out of her busy schedule to talk with me and give me advice and direction for my current writing career struggles. I can’t thank her enough!”
