Event by Pat Conroy Literary Center


Wednesday January 12, 2022; 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Zoom.
Limited to 15 participants

In this online workshop, each participant will brainstorm a story idea in their niche and we will work on a successful pitch. Elements that make a compelling story plus how to apply that to trending news will be discussed. We will also use different methods to find appropriate ways to contact editors. The course will end with organizations to join, newsletters to read, great blogs to look up and Facebook groups that can’t be missed for jobs, tips and networking.

This workshop will be held as an online video conference call through Zoom. Details for joining the video call will be provided to all participating writers after registering.
