You can grab access to all of our past webinars (and a ton of other resources you can’t find anywhere else) with a subscription to our Dream Buffet or grab them one-by-one when you need them in our On-Demand Webinar Library for a set with the video, audio, transcript, and slides.
But we also air a free replay of one of our travel writing classes each and every weekday.
Each weekday at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT / 11pm CET (and 9am AEDT Tues-Sat), we show one webinar from our archives, rotating though all of them over the course of four months.
Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, December 17, 5pm EST: How to Hone your Travel Article Ideas to Perfectly Fit Each Magazine
In this webinar we workshopped article concepts into ready-to-pitch, focused ideas with multiple angles matched to specific magazines.
I pre-matched them with specific sections from multiple magazines and walked through the process of honing an article “idea” from your concept into something adapted to a magazine and ready to pitch.
Experienced pitchers dive right in and start pounding out queries and increasing their income, but newer writers (or those new to pitching) need more dot connecting in terms of how the sections in a magazine that are open to freelancers translate to the actual words on the page of a pitch.
In this webinar, I not only walk through some different ways to use the database that can open up new avenues for your pitching, but also write some pitches live based on sections in the database to show how it’s done.
You can take workshop after workshop on how to write the perfect travel article, but if your pitches aren’t landing assignments, it’s all for naught. In this webinar, we walk step-by-step through what you need to know to write the perfect pitch–and everything that you should leave out.
Thursday, December 20, 5pm EST: The Art of The Follow Up—The Simple Key to Dramatically More Assignments
We’ll talk about timing, scripts, and mechanics of following up with editors on your pitches.
I’ll discuss tricky editor responses you aren’t (or weren’t if they’ve come in in the past and you let the coals go cold because you weren’t sure what to do) sure how to respond to and how to handle them.
In our weekly webinars, in my inbox, on coaching calls, and in my talks at conferences and workshops, I’m always getting questions on pitching. While there are some basic questions that come up again and again, there are also deeper, more “circumstance”-based questions that many are afraid to ask in a group setting because they think they’ve done something wrong in their pitch or editor-writer etiquette to get into the situation in the first place.
In this webinar, I share from my huge store of these pitching questions for both the newer writers and people who have been doing this for a while.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
