Pitching for Publication
A Masterclass in How to Get Your Articles Commissioned
“Great tips for anyone starting out or just needing a fresh outlook on pitching to new editors. The lesson on confidence was particularly relevant to a writer who is quite weary with not hearing back. Editors are not better than you, just busy, so don’t give up! Katie touches on everything from tone of voice, to treating your pitch like a business – an indispensable course.” SARA DARLING, travel, culture and lifestyle writer.
