BRICK, N.Y.—Michael Ventriello, founder of Ventriello Communications and dental industry ghostwriter, editor and published author, recently launched The Dental Writers Academy, a quarterly, three-month online mentorship program for aspiring dental writers.
“For the past 15 years, I’ve been helping some of dentistry’s most prominent key opinion leaders and industry executives launch and maintain their writing careers—I continue to work with many of them today," said Ventriello. “I love working with the dental industry’s veteran authors, but now it’s time to coach the next generation of aspiring dental writers in a virtual classroom setting and by using digital media.”
The first session of the Dental Writers Academy is from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 and includes ongoing, personalized e-coaching with Ventriello and a monthly virtual study club, which will frequently feature well-known dental authors as guests. Study modules will include topics such as:
• Developing your voice and personal brand
• Beating writer’s block
• Writing for the web
• Promoting your articles on social media
• Getting published and getting paid
“My intent is to have enrollees begin writing an article during the three-month session and have a finished draft shortly after graduation," says Ventriello. “I will personally edit and submit the best of these final drafts to my dental media contacts for consideration and possible publication.”
