Last month I was in Dubai and led just a two hour workshop for writers, which I called Pitch Perfect. One of those students was Kristina Aaronson, and today, her first piece is published in the Weekly Telegraph. That really is amazingly quick. To make the pitch, sell it and for it to appear in just a month is unbelievable. Perhaps it is because it really is a super piece of writing, about her interactions with Emirati women at Sheikh Zayed university, where she works. Way to go, Kristina!

Read her super piece here.
