RPT Pitch Perfect: Pitching and Negotiating Skills for Freelancers

Rory Peck Trust has introduced a new 'Business of Freelancing' series – and this first event will cover how to pitch a story to improve your chances of securing that commission.

Join this interactive online workshop to learn the ins and outs of pitching with Emma Wilkinson and Lily Canter, authors of the book and creators of the podcast Freelancing for Journalists.


Are you a freelance journalist looking for tips and advice on how to pitch? Having a good story or subject is only the first step. Now you have to convince an editor to commission it! Led by experienced freelancers, this session will equip you with the skills to pitch news stories to a range of broadcasters and publications.

The online session will cover:

  • How to find commissioning editors
  • How to create a great pitch
  • How to negotiate fair pay
  • How to build an ongoing relationship with editors

You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and will receive a useful list of resources after the event.

This event is FREE for freelance journalists.

The new 'Business of Freelancing' series of events will cover the topics that matter most to freelance journalists – from pitching and negotiation to how to present yourself professionally online.

The Rory Peck Trust provides practical and financial support to freelance journalists and their families worldwide, assisting in times of crisis and helping them to work more safely and professionally.
