CFG Guelph is proud to present:
Pitching NOT Bitching!
How to make a good pitch about a story and get published.
Online Zoom, Tuesday, January 12th, 7pm ET
Pitching is either something you feel challenged by or procrastinate about doing. No matter the type of article you want to write, a good pitch letter will get you noticed by an assigning editor.
You have a good idea for an article, then what? Explore the simplicity of pitching, the instruments to finding outlets to pitch, the opportunities to mine your own life for ideas, and the different perspectives your topic can have.
Successful pitch samples will be shared. Come prepared with your questions.
