Written an article and don’t know where to send it? Have a great article and don’t know how to pitch it? You’re not alone.

Finding perspective media outlets to pitch to can be difficult. Then once you have the idea, pitching it to the editor can be daunting. Not knowing where to send your work, or how to sell you article in a few short lines is an issue that many media students face.

So what are editors looking for? What makes a great pitch and where can you start getting work published? To help you out, JMAC is inviting you to hear from four journalism students all currently working and writing at various media outlets in Melbourne.
