What: Please join us for a session for community groups to learn how to pitch stories to the media and to get news covered.
Meet with journalists and trainers in print, broadcast, online media and public relations.
Step by step, how does the press select stories to cover?
What’s a pitch, and what kind of pitches catch the attention of decision-makers?
How do you make a local story appeal to national media?
How can you help journalists gain access to and understand diverse communities, diverse issues?
The workshop will include specific examples, case studies as well as allow participants to break into small groups, with a trainer guiding a conversation in each group.
Attendees may want to bring specific ideas and issues to brainstorm within your group and with our speakers.
