Pitching for Publication
Have you always wanted to see your byline in print? You don't have to be a professional writer to get your essays published, but it does help to know the rules of pitching. This class will teach you how to pitch essays to mainstream publications like online magazines and newspapers. You will go home with handouts for reference, a cohesive list of potential markets, and plenty of inspiration!
Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.
Who Should Register?
Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who have been underrepresented in it due to cost, racism, immigration status, language access, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that these voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.
These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
