Let me guess: you’ve been thinking about pursuing freelance writing FOR-EV-ER,
but you don’t know how.
So far, all you’ve done is written some half-hearted blog posts, followed a few writers on Twitter, and dreamed of seeing your name in your favorite magazines. And while you’d love to do nothing else but interview celebs, write passionate op-ed pieces, or shine a light on issues most important to you…you don’t know where to start.
Plus, you’ve heard magazines and newspapers are dying and you’re worried about getting into the industry right now (because who wants to be broke?).
But here’s the truth: NOW is the best time to become a freelance writer.
The industry is going through some major changes and publications are relying on freelancers more than ever.
Why shouldn’t you be one of them?
The Write Pitch is a 6-week hands-on, video-based course for new and wannabe writers looking to break into freelancing without any clips or connections.
- Never been published before?
- Don’t know any editors?
- Need help networking?
- Want to know how to write a killer pitch?
The Write Pitch is for you!
The Write Pitch will cover:
- Why now is the perfect time to get into the freelance writing industry (in spite of what some say)

- How to write kick-ass article pitches
- How to network effectively, both on and offline

- At least one salable pitch that has been vetted by your classmates & me.

Five years ago I was exactly where you are right now.
I dreamed of pursing a writing career, but had never been published and didn’t know how to get on an editor’s radar. Since teaching myself the ins and outs of freelancing, my work has been featured in numerous publications including ESSENCE, Heart & Soul, Clutch, JET Magazine, EBONY, GOOD Magazine, The Root, The Grio, and The Guardian, and I have interviewed countless celebrities like Halle Berry, Chris Brown, Viola Davis, Mary Mary, Alfre Woodard, Eve, Tracee Ellis Ross, Octavia Spencer, Tate Taylor, Kelly Rowland, Idris Elba, and OPRAH!
ThroughThe Write Pitch I will share what I’ve learned over the years + share insights from current or former editors of EBONY, Glamour, Essence, Vibe, Black Enterprise, and O, The Oprah Magazine.

I am a procrastinator, so I get information but I don’t always use it. The information provided in this course was exactly what I needed.Zanib Karim
Thank you so much for
#TheWritePitch Only one week later I pitched idea and it was published today.
The Write Pitch motivated me to get off my butt and get going. It was a wonderful platform to help me become more organized and focused on being a better writer. Gaining contacts/networking was great too. I’ve reached out to other writers in the past for advice and was totally ignored. TWP is a positive platform for development.Dijon Rolle
