How to Pitch Editors Master Class

  • Neukölln, Berlin Germany (map)

In the How to Pitch Editors Master Class we'll be opening up our folders of story pitches, email correspondences, and expensively framed acceptance letters. We'll talk about generating pitch ideas, building a portfolio, talking to editors, sending cold pitches, developing editorial relationships, and networking. This is a two-day jump start for new and mid-career freelancers.
