Bring your story idea to Pitch Slam 2018, where you can present it to a panel of editors and get immediate feedback on how to make the story work for the editors' publications. Editors will start by providing a tour of their publications and what they look for in pitches. Members of the audience will then step up to a microphone one by one, and pitch their ideas. The whole audience will hear the panel of editors react to each pitch. This is a great way to get to know editors and gain an understanding of how they, and their publications, approach stories.
