Pitch Requests Newsletter for Black Freelance Writers!
A NEW 'PITCH REQUESTS' NEWSLETTER for Black Freelance Writers
I've thought about creating a newsletter that Posts Pitch Requests for Black Freelance Writers like myself. There is a growing number of us and I believe that there are enough stories to be told. I'd like to help be apart of anyone's beginning into their freelance freedom.
In the newsletter I'll also SHARE my engagement experiences with editors and let you know WHO responds to WHAT type of pitches. Pitching is an artform that should be studied and only done when requested. That's the key. Only pitch a story when being asked to pitch a story.
It's that simple.

Here are this week's Requests.

Next year's #Oscars have been postponed due to upheaval in the release schedule from COVID-19. In a statement on Monday, Academy president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson announced changes to eligibility and voting deadlines, as well as the delay of the ceremony itself until April 25, 2021. "Our hope, in extending the eligibility period and our Awards date, is to provide the flexibility filmmakers need to finish and release their films without being penalized for something beyond anyone’s control."
