About This Class

In this class, you'll learn the first step to getting an article published in a major news, lifestyle, or fashion publication: THE ART OF THE PITCH.

My name is Amirah Mercer, and I'm a freelance writer and editor who has written for Vogue, Vanity Fair, VICE, and more. I'll teach you how to write a pitch that will grab the attention of the right editor at the right online or print publication for your story. 

You will walk away with an understanding of what types of stories today's editors — especially digital editors — are interested in assigning, how to come up with unique news angles, how to find editors' contact information, and the best way to get their attention via their email inbox.

I will work with you to develop a structured pitch that is ready to send to an editor and will kickstart your career as a published writer. Let's get started!
