Pitch Laboratory [Madeline Ostrander]
All Levels | To publish nonfiction in any commercial journal and many literary ones, you must learn the art of the pitch. To pitch is to distill a story to its fundamentals. In few words, you must conjure plot, characters, and story structure, so that your editor trusts you to grow the story into a robust narrative. In this workshop, students will bring their ideas to life in pitch form—in order to entice editors and find opportunities for publishing new work. With special guests, Andrew Engelson, Cascadia Magazine founder and executive editor, and Florangela Davila, managing editor of Crosscut.
