Pitching & Publishing 101: What to Do When You Want to Get Published for 9-12th grade

Do you want to write for magazines, newspapers, and other publications? Do you have a unique perspective that you want to share with the world? This workshop will guide you through the steps of how to pitch essays and articles to editors, and the many paths to publication. (We will focus mostly on freelance pitching, not book publishing.) When we finish, you'll have a strong pitch crafted, ready to send to a list of potential editors.

This workshop is for students in 9-12th grade and will take place online using Zoom.

Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email
