Crafting the Perfect Pitch

Many writers and adventurers dream of seeing their stories published. But "cracking the code" with magazines and other publications can be a tough gig. What sells a story? What are editors looking for? What can a writer do to make their story stand out?

Workshop

Crafting the Perfect Pitch: Getting Your Adventure Stories Published

For 15 years Meghan has worked both as a professional writer and editor, giving her unique insights from each side of the equation. In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn about story ideas versus story angles, how to write a query letter, think visually, and other tactics to help you get your stories published in magazines, blogs, and beyond. Not a writer? Photographers and filmmakers will gain insights into the industry, learn best practices for pitching to magazines, and how to gain press for creative projects.

Speaker

Meghan J. Ward is an outdoor, travel and adventure writer based in Banff, Canada, a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and the author of Lights to Guide Me Home. She will be joining the VIMFF 2024 to lead a workshop about how to get your adventure stories published.
