Accessing the Media workshop April 19

The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists cordially invites you to our 3rd annual educational workshop, "Secrets to Accessing the Media: How to Get Your Stories Told."

This free workshop will give you a unique opportunity to speak with some of the men and women who work for Charlotte-area newspapers, magazines, and television and radio stations. This is also a great networking opportunity, not only with the media, but other community leaders.

During this workshop, you will learn the best way to get the word out on your events. You will also get a chance to learn how newsrooms in our area work. This informative workshop will also arm you with information on who you should call first and how to pitch a great story.
