October 28, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT$25.00
Writing and pitching stories from the POV of a marginalized identity like a sex worker and/or sex trafficking survivor can be extraordinarily frustrating. If editors do give you a chance at being published, there is often the battle of expectations dictated by someone who has never spent a day in the sex industry. How can writers in the sex industry dodge being pigeon-holed by editors? How can writers in the sex industry break out into writing about non sex industry-related topics? This class will cover the basics of freelancing successfully and also address how sex workers and trafficking survivors can parlay their stories into headlines that go viral, then push into writing on other topic areas like politics, current events, beauty and fashion and more! You will leave this class with concrete tools on how to write a stellar pitch, the basics of how and to whom to send a story idea, and other tips and tricks for a successful freelancing career.
