WLP Publishing Series: Magazine Pitch Slam

November 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come pitch your stories to four magazine and news editors:

Gabe Bergado is entertainment features editor at Teen Vogue, where he works on stories about identity, representation in popular culture, rising stars, and more.

Catherine Elton is a senior editor at Boston Magazine, where she writes and edits features. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Glamour, and Psychology Today.

Tom Gara is the opinion editor for BuzzFeed News. Originally from Australia, Gara began his career in Egypt and has worked as a reporter and editor for The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times.

Cooper Fleishman is New York bureau chief at MEL, a magazine for socially conscious men (and people who aren’t men too). MEL covers everything from gun violence and toxic masculinity to obscure Internet subcultures and the comedy of sports.

Pitch rules:

You will have one minute to verbally pitch one story idea.

You should tailor your pitch to one of the represented magazines.

You need not pitch to attend. We hope you will though, because you may walk away with an assignment.
