Metro Detroiters will pitch their story "Shark Tank" style for a chance to be featured in the news.

About this Event

Do you have what it takes to convince a panel of journalists to publish your story? Find out at The Detroit Writing Room's Pitch Your Story Competition.

Presenters get 3 minutes to pitch their business, nonprofit, event, cause or personal story in front of a panel of judges from the media. Your pitch should include why your story deserves to be told and what makes it newsworthy.

The first place winner will have their story published online and in a print issue of SEEN Magazine. The second place winner will have their story published online at seenthemagazine.com.

Judges include:

  • Kevin Browett, SEEN Publisher and President of Renaissance Media Solutions
  • Stephanie Steinberg, Detroit Writing Room Founder and SEEN Managing Editor
  • Dorothy Hernandez, Detroit Writing Room Coach, SEEN Copy Editor and Model D Managing Editor
  • Bill Vlasic, Detroit Writing Rom Coach and former New York Times Detroit Bureau Chief

To enter the pitch competition, visit www.detroitwritingroom.com/pitch-your-story. Entries must be made by Aug. 31. There is no cost to enter.

Presenters will be notified Sept. 3 if they have been accepted into the competition.

The public is invited to watch as the finalists pitch their stories, "Shark Tank" style, in front of the judges. Early bird tickets are $10 until Oct. 1.
