Training: Workshops & Seminars
Editors from some of the top magazines and newspapers are going virtual to meet you! Bring your best ideas to the AHCJ Virtual PitchFest.
This session has been created to give you an opportunity to pitch your ideas virtually one-on-one with editors from selected publications.
To participate, you will register for time slots with the editors of your choosing and pay a flat fee of $35. If time slots are available on Sept. 28, members who have already registered may select an additional editor time slot, at no additional charge.
At 8 a.m. ET, Sept. 30, if we have Virtual PitchFest editor spots available, even if you have already selected three appointments, we will open the remaining spots until filled.
You need to arrive virtually with specific pitches for the editors, as well as clips, resume, business cards, etc. More details on how to share these during the session will be forthcoming.
In preparation for the event, we invite you to participate in a special webcast on Friday, Oct. 2, “Pitching your best stories during the pandemic.” That session will feature veteran writers and editors will help you craft pitches for coronavirus and non-coronavirus stories. Panelists will help you prepare for the virtual PitchFest by providing tips to hone your one-on-one pitching skills.
