Workshop: Pitch Perfect

Editors can receive hundreds of submissions every week. How do you make yours stand out – and what do editors want to know when you pitch? Jonathan Green explains how to make your pitch stick out from the pack.

Who?

Portrait of Jonathan Green

Jonathan Green

Jonathan Green has been a working journalist since the late 1970s. This makes him both very old and reasonably experienced. After an early degree-ending flirtation with public radio, the bulk of Jonathan’s career has been spent in newspapers, beginning with a cadetship at the Canberra Times and taking in a small Cook’s tour of Australian dailies: the Melbourne Herald, the Herald Sun, the Sunday Herald, the Sunday Age and the Age. In mid-2015 he was appointed as editor of the literary quarterly Meanjin.

New News by the Centre for Advancing Journalism

How do you pick true news from fake news? How would diversity in senior and junior positions change the news we report – and how we report it? And does state politics need to be theatrical to be interesting to journalists?

Hear from some of the brightest minds in the media at this three-day series of discussions and workshops on the present and future of journalism. Including Brett McLeod, Katharine Murphy, Emma Alberici, Julian Burnside and more.

New News is presented in partnership with the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne, and Monash University.
