Pitching to Get Published
February 4, 2024 from 2 to 4 p.m. (EST)/11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (PT). You’ve got a brilliant idea for an essay or article that you’re sure should be gracing the pages of Vogue or the New York Times. That’s the easy part. Catching a busy editor’s eye can be a lot tougher. Enter the perfect pitch: the first step to seeing your words out there in the world where they belong. This class will provide a hands-on, practical guide to writing pitches that grab an editor's attention and lead to publication.
Topics will include:
• A step-by-step guide and template for writing a pitch that editors will notice.
• Details on how to find outlets and individual editors to send your pitch to.
• Guidance on the process of pitching and getting published, with tips on how to stay organized and focused.
Our session will also include an opportunity to work on a pitch together with live feedback from your peers and the instructor.
