This is an interactive session so come ready to work on that story idea you have! Pitching is surely an art, but there is a science behind it as well. In this session, we’ll look at the fundamentals of effective pitching that answer three key questions. We’ll also look at best practices of effective pitches (that Yulia developed six over the years of pitching–and getting assignments) and learn how to find opportunities to get your work out there.
