Event description

Description

Telling your story in the media and getting published can be a challenge. It can be even more challenging when you’re part of a minority. We especially encourage people from First Nations, migrant-background, queer and/or disability communities to join Benjamin Law to the fundamental skills necessary to write stories that websites, magazines and newspapers want - and get paid for them. You will learn how to constantly generate story ideas; master the art of pitching; understand how to plan a story from conception to publication write sellable, readable stories; invoice publishers; and adopt management and business skills vital to freelancing.
