How To Pitch and Submit, January 7-18
This online course focuses on developing, pitching and submitting articles, op-eds and essays. While the course is open to anyone, the impetus behind it is to help academics and grad students reach wider audiences and improve the gender disparity in bylines. The course has led to many people drafting, submitting and selling their first pitch during the two week course itself (and then selling many more pitches afterwards), and has also helped many established freelancers challenge break into new markets, including The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Chronicle of Higher Education, LitHub, Washington Post, McSweeneys, Atlas Obscura, Smithsonian, The Wall Street Journal, ScientificAmerican.com, Guernica, Mental Floss, Tablet, The Awl, and many other outlets. We include several Q & As with editors about pitching, submitting, and the freelance/editor relationship as well.
Enrollment is limited to 12 people. No refunds unless the course is cancelled.
