Join the Muña cohort in an open virtual workshop session where we will discuss pitching, press, and publishing. How do you take an idea and turn it into a successful pitch? What are best practices for pitching and working with an editor? What are helpful resources for freelance writers? In this public workshop, Kerry Cardoza aims to answer these questions and more, in the hopes of demystifying the pitching and publishing process. We encourage all art workers to come and get a better understanding of the art industry’s relationship with editors, journalism, press, and publishing.
Kerry Cardoza will facilitate workshop.
