May 12 Motion Picture Storytelling

Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone has access to a camera. This workshop will introduce the process of learning to tell a story with limited tools to preserve, inspire, or share our stories with one another.

May 31 Pitch Clinic

Taught by Jennifer Hope Choi, 1-night workshop

Whether you’re an established writer or just starting out, pitching is an essential part of the publication process. As an editor for Bon Appétit, I have read, passed on, and greenlit countless pitches. As a writer who has published in places such as The New York Times, the Atlantic, and BuzzFeed News, I also understand the rigorous process one must undertake to make their pitch stand out from the crowd. In this short workshop, we’ll talk about what makes a pitch shine from the slush pile. We’ll review pitches that sold and pitches that miss the mark and why. We will also discuss your own pitches (submitted in advance) and workshop how to make them stronger.
