I want to tell you about a July workshop being run by a colleague, Susan Grossman. She is a BBC broadcaster, magazine editor, travel writer and author, and is currently lecturer on the MA course in journalism at Westminster University.
Pitching to Editors is for writers of non-fiction, PRs, former editors, staff writers, photographers or freelancers looking to impress editors with their pitches.
The workshop is small so that everyone gets feedback on pitches they want to bring in. The aim of the workshop is to help people expand their outlets, identify target audiences, re-work existing material and explore the lucrative market of customer magazines (from airline and store magazines to those for banks or businessmen). I gather that the success rate is good and the day is not only motivational but a great networking opportunity.
Next workshop is on Monday 12th July at RIBA, W1.
10 am to 5 pm.
