For the second year in a row, AAJA Seattle is offering a Media Access Workshop for nonprofits! Sign up for this free speed networking event with local media professionals. Meet one-on-one with local journalists and media professionals to get advice on how to pitch your stories to news organizations, and how to handle reporters when they come calling.

The event is at The Seattle Times from 9-11:30 a.m. Sunday April 26.

This short workshop will start off with a presentation on best practices for writing press releases and contacting the media. Then, you’ll get a chance to meet one-on-one with a local media professional to ask for advice and get tips on your elevator speech.

So, come with your business cards and your elevator pitch, and be ready to mingle.
