You have the story. You know you can write it and deliver it. But how to get the editor’s attention—and a green light to proceed?
CFG Founding Member Sandra Phinney takes you on a journey down the freelance “pitching for success” path. This workshop covers:
- today’s most common complaints from editors (and how to capitalize on that knowledge);
- how to analyze magazines, newspapers and websites before creating a pitch;
- tips to make your query jump off the page;
- sample pitches/queries are included, along with a real-life email trail with an editor, from pitch to filing story, including negotiating the best rate.
