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.
