How to Make a Pitch
SPC 213 students, you are about to begin your media writing assignment. As a part of this exercise, you will have a chance to write either a news release, media advisory or a pitch letter. Here’s a great video from the Associated Press that offers some helpful tips on how to successfully pitch a story. I also have several media examples (news releases, media advisories, fact sheets) posted on Blackboard, and we will review additional examples in class this week.

SPC 313 students should take a look too…your pitch letter assignment is coming up soon! Check it out and see what you think.

Pull up a chair and let’s talk.
