Tow Tea: Pitching for the Digital Space, Tips for Freelancing

March 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

How do you pitch effectively for online publications?  The internet has allowed greater access to the contact information of commissioning editors and to publications’ archives—how can these resources be used to effectively pitch freelance work?   Is it possible to sustain oneself as a freelancer?  We will discuss these questions and many more in an open, conversational Tow Tea this Thursday at 4 pm.

This event is particularly relevant for those who wish to publish their masters theses.

Ann Friedman is a columnist for New York magazine’s website and for the Columbia Journalism Review. She also makes pie charts, sends out a weekly email newsletter, and co-hosts the podcast Call Your Girlfriend. Her work appears in places like ELLE, The New Republic, The Gentlewoman, The Guardian and The Washington Post. Before taking a lucrative career turn into freelance writing, she was the editor of GOOD magazine. She lives in Los Angeles, but travels so often that the best place to find her is online at www.annfriedman.com.
