Stuck on a pitch OR OVERWHELMED? 😩
Not sure what editors want?🤦♀️
DON'T KNOW WHERE TO PUBLISH?🤬
HAVE 40 MINUTES TO INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF YOUR CAREER?🌟
Using efficient, intensive consulting sessions, I work with writers and storytellers to help their idea become the best it can be.
The goal: By the end of a Pitch Fairy session, the storyteller feels more confident in their idea's trajectory, and is able to take away workable steps they can implement to improve the chances that their idea is ultimately published, viewed or aired.
In these 40-minute sessions I offer you guidance via a 5-step process:
Review your pitch
Offer constructive feedback from the POV of a commissioning editor
Workshop its concept with you
Work with you to determine how the pitch can be improved to meet your objectives
Brainstorm appropriate placement and timing
Sessions focus on one pitch at a time, with the goal of securing the right placement for the pitch you develop.
Each session is individualized to your needs. We'll work one-on-one, focusing on your both your long-term goals and your goals for this pitch.
You'll leave the session with a plan forward, that you can execute when you are ready.
The session will also help you think outside of the box with your story. Maybe there is an angle or concept you haven't considered? Maybe your idea is better suited to video or audio?
We'll work together to imagine the various directions your concept can go, whether book, film, story or show.
We'll also think about how you can get paid the maximum amount for your idea.
Pitch Fairy🧚 sessions are available at your convenience, by phone or Zoom.
Using a combination of Zoom plus Google docs, we'll look at your work together.
Spanish & Portuguese sessions are available as well for the same cost.
Regular weekly, biweekly or monthly sessions can also be set up. If you have two pitches, we can also schedule a double session.
About Me: I understand both sides of the pitching game in journalism.
I'm the former Editor of Economics and Government at Bloomberg and bring to the table the perspective of a busy editor.
I'm also a longtime freelance writer. I've placed hundreds of stories in top publications. Which means I've also had my pitches rejected hundreds of times.😅
I understand, I've been there, and I can help.
For a limited time, a Pitch Fairy🧚 Session costs $50 for 40 minutes. Double sessions (2 pitches) cost $100 for an hour and a half.
Payment is made 10 minutes before the session begins, via Paypal, Venmo or Zelle. Other forms of payment may be accepted with prior arrangements.
Pitch Fairy🧚 sessions are not intended to be used to obtain my contacts, nor for me to steal your ideas (no way!). Our discussions are private.
Rather, in the spirit of peer support, and "I've been there" sympathy, these sessions are designed to help storytellers who are feeling frustrated, uninspired, or lost uncover their story's top potential. I'm here to help lift you and your ideas up.
