The Hive Box

This skillshare is tip-top! The presenter does not disappoint, and the content is useful and often insightful. Morgan does a great job in every aspect: Explains things so well they seem simple, even easy. Her speech is clear and measured, easy to follow, without errors or trailing into fluff. She doesn't send you across the web to read references, she brings the content into her skillshare. The attached class notes are beautiful. The content is delivered with perfect linearity and is chaptered intelligently. She covers what a pitch is, why it is valuable skill, pitch development, delivery, and a technical how-to, plus encouraging methods to be a productive writer for those who want to be, but aren't.
