There’s an art to writing about your work. Whether you’re talking to a sponsor, a network or a listener, I’ll help you hone in on the heart of your story. Because behind every great podcast is a persuasive pitch. I teach producers how to identify their audience and work towards reaching them. You’ll walk away from my class with an understanding of how to launch your podcast and what you need to keep it going.
