“a Virgil to guide you through television’s latest ring of hell”

“I don’t really watch a lot of reality television, mind you, but I must admit my day is never complete without a peek at Andy’s flawless Weblog devoted to the subject, realityblurred.com.”

Whitney Matheson, USA TODAY

“What I like most about Andy’s presentations and sessions is that he goes beyond just telling students what to do. Instead, he shares examples of his experiences as a working freelancer and reality television expert. Andy encourages students to pursue writing, but without sounding Pollyanna-ish about what the prospects are of landing a well-paying freelance gig. His wealth of experience with magazines and publishing — along with a wry, sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor — provides him a credible voice that really connects with students.”

Tom Nelson, professor of journalism, Loyola Marymount University
