Welcome to Thursday.

There is a reason why editors and producers aren’t responding to your pitches. No shade, but your delivery is probably wack. Editors receive hundreds of requests daily and yours won’t make it to the top of the pile unless your pitch game is strong.

Help is on the way.

Sherrell is teaming up with creative strategist and journalist Chasity Cooper to drop some serious gems on effectively sharing your pitch and getting the response you deserve.

This hour-long webinar is Tuesday, July 18th at 7 PM/ET. Click here to RSVP.
