Free Resources: Not just any old resources — they post submission and contact info for 100s of media outlets, scripts and sample language for pitching, and FAQs. They have culled through all the stuff, so you don’t have to.
Weekly Webinars: Now hosting “Ask a Journalist” webinars every Thursday at 5pm ET. Think of it as office hours with a journalist who is rooting for you, and can answer all your questions. Rotating topics, and do live "master edits." Pay what you can (or not).
Core Workshop: “Write to Change the World” workshops are where we provide deeper support. If you've already done our core workshop, this is also a chance to think about others you know, whose voices you believe in, and shine on them. One way to do that could be simply to reach out to them, tell them their voice matters, and tell them why. Point them to our website schedule, and to our scholarship page, if they need it.
Advanced Workshop: For those of you who have already done the core workshop, an advanced workshop, for alums only, on Monday June 29: “Connection: Accelerating Ideas.” Part of their fellowship curriculum, rarely offered to the public, it focuses on connecting people and ideas across time, space, expertise and identity — and on accelerating our ideas by investing in diversity and cross-pollination.
Private Editorial Coaching: for anyone who wants more dedicated support than provided in the workshops, webinars and website.
All of programs are open to all, regardless of means. More on our scholarship policy is here.
