Pitch Your Passions

Introductory/Intermediate | Distinguish yourself in the freelance marketplace by defining your niche. In this class, novice freelancers and more established writers looking to secure paid assignments with newspapers, glossy print, and digital media outlets will discuss niche markets such as book and product reviews, fashion, food, home décor, and more. We’ll learn how to develop or define an area of expertise, strengthen pitches, and use a single story for multiple outlets.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
