How to Pitch to LA Weekly and other publications

Sunday July 1, 2pm- 4pm
Hosted by LA Weekly‘s Gwynedd Stuart & April Wolfe

In an effort to change publishing demographics — with a special emphasis on including writers of color — LA Weekly editors and writers want to give new writers a leg up by helping to refine their pitches and demonstrating proper pitching techniques. Workshop attendees will be required to come with 2 pitch ideas suitable for an Arts & Culture section. You can bring a laptop or pen and paper to write, though laptops are encouraged. (Materials will be emailed before  workshop date.) At the end of the workshop, you’ll have two polished pitches and face time with LA Weekly‘s assigning editor. Writers of color are highly encouraged to attend. 

Gwynedd Stuart is the Arts & Culture editor at LA Weekly, and April Wolfe is the lead film critic with years of freelance writing and editing experience.
