Most nonfiction pieces, whether in magazines or online, begin life as pitches--an email sent from a writer to an editor. In this workshop, we will walk you through how to come up with arresting pitches for everything from book reviews to essays to feature pieces. We'll walk through the anatomy of an effective pitch letter, as well as editor etiquette. We'll also talk about the delicate question of money.
