Freelances endlessly need to pitch for work and to do deals. Whether you are a writer, photographer, reporter, subeditor, broadcaster or whatever, you will benefit from knowing how to present your work and your ideas so as to make them most attractive to clients and from understanding what goes into making a deal and how you might improve on that first offer.

This one-day course aims to help freelances market their work and negotiate better deals for themselves.

Through role-play exercises and discussion, participants will work on the skills and attitudes needed to try to get more commissions and more money. This will include:

  • pitching ideas with deals in mind
  • identifying outlets
  • interacting with editors
  • thinking about fees
  • asking for more money
  • adding conditions
  • understanding the psychology of pitching and dealing
  • coming up with scripts for situations
  • role plays to put ideas into practice.
