Event description

Description

Bay Area reporter and author Carol Pogash describes herself as an “all-terrain communicator.” Her stories appear in The New York Times, The Guardian, the Huffington Post and many other publications. She’s a TV reporter, magazine writer, newspaper columnist, online editor, blogger, radio essayist and book author.

Her poignant book As Real As It Gets: The Life of a Hospital at the Center of the AIDS Epidemic, introduced by Randy Shilts, describes what happened when blood suddenly became a toxin. Even closer to home, she wrote about a bizarre, sensational murder in her home town of Orinda in a book titled Seduced by Madness: The True Story of the Susan Polk Murder Case. Pogash’s Quotations From Chairman Trump was the first book to call attention to the candidate’s quotes and tweets. The book, which has gone into its fourth printing, was an early warning of what could result from a Trump presidency.

Join us Tuesday, Octobber 23, 2018, to hear from this quintessential journalist, who has learned a thing or two about pitching stories to editors in every medium — and how to write them in down-to-earth prose that compels attention. You’ll also find out what it takes to go beyond local media outlets in your PR efforts, and take your clients and your messages national, and even international.

Cost: $30 members, $45 non-members

Register: By Thursday, October 18, 8 p.m.
