ONLINE Opinion Series – WTF Happened and Why: Writing the Event Story
You came. You saw. You experienced. Now what? You’re going to write about it, of course, and hopefully sell it. Learn how to prep and pitch event stories to blogs and magazines, what to gather and focus on while you’re attending, and how to write them. Targeted at freelance writers, applicable to travel writers and corporate communicators.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
