Pitch Perfect: Where Good Ideas Go to Grow!
Spotlight PR
Dec 8 - Friday
10:00 AM
12:00 PM


Join journalists from HuffPost, Rewire, Mic.com, NBC Black and Roll Call for "Pitch Perfect: Where Good Ideas Go to Grow 2!" on Friday, December 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Impact HUB DC.

Journalists are routinely bombarded with scores of media releases as public relations professionals outnumber journalists 4-1. Everyone believes their issue will be the one that breaks through the noise and gets covered. But the truth is, even the most noteworthy of causes could go unnoticed or under-reported. Picking the right news hook and story angle is essential. Learn how at Pitch Perfect: Where Good Ideas Go to Grow 2!

The second annual event provides a platform for communicators to pitch stories directly to journalists, who will either accept a pitch or give feedback on ways to fine tune it. The event features contributors and reporters from Mic.com, NBC Black, HuffPost.com and more.


Here’s How It’ll Work:

Willing participants will place their pitch in a box and select whether they want to read it aloud themselves or have the moderator read it. The event will be live streamed so persons outside of the Washington, D.C. area can submit pitches via Twitter or Facebook. If a journalist accepts your pitch, they’ll follow-up to request additional details and possibly write a story. If your pitch is, in musical terms, off-key, a member of the panel will provide feedback to help strengthen it.

While I can't promise hilarity over songs, off-key or otherwise, I can promise a great time. Pitch Perfect: Where Good Ideas Go to Grow2! is the must-attend workshop of 2017. Join us on Friday, December 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The cost to participate is $29.95 per person. Go to Facebook.com/tips4extraordinaryPR for more information.
