Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:

Thursday, April 29, 5pm EST: Putting Together a Pitch Portfolio to Support a Big Trip

In this webinar, we walk through several press trip itineraries to show who and what to pitch to set up a varied portfolio of coverage for each trip. We discuss five techniques you can use to ensure an impressive pitch portfolio to accompany any press trip request, and how to handle this process whether you’ve never been published and have no connections or have editors that you work with already but perhaps want to branch out to a new subject or geographic area.

Friday, April 30, 5pm EST: How To Prepare For Your Press Trip

In the previous webinar, we looked in detail about all of the things that you need to clarify expectations on before your press trip (including several recommendations of how to handle requests for itinerary changes, additional nights, and flights).

In this webinar, we look more about the story side of pre-trip preparation, including how to break your trip into stories, what is safe to pitch based on a limited itinerary or destination you’re not familiar with, and how to handle the catch-22 of pitching when you haven’t yet been accepted on a trip.
