Welcome message from WIWC Executive Director, Sarah Ford


Why Participate?

This session offers tips on what journalists are looking for and how to hone your organization's stories to make them stand out in a sea of competing pitches.

Session participants have the opportunity to submit in a pitch (taking into consideration what they had learned in the workshop) and can receive feedback from the CBC team on what worked and what could use improvements.
