Pitch Slam!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Pitch Slam! This panel is geared for freelancers, who will have 90 seconds to pitch an idea to each of a panel of six editors from a variety of publications. The editors will give rapid-fire feedback and, for the lucky journalist, might say "come talk to me" and hand over a business card. During this fast-paced session, freelancers will get instant feedback, learn how to craft more enticing pitches and make new connections. And it will be fun! If you're looking for a creative boost, you won't want to miss this.
