How to pitch a story to a national magazine

I heard Victoria Woodhall, deputy features editor for You magazine, Mail on Sunday, give this helpful advice at a charity conference, and asked her to share it via my video.

Although it is aimed at the charity sector and describes how they can successfully achieve positive media coverage in a glossy mag, such as You, it is also great advice for the communications industry in general.

I hope you find it interesting. And many thanks Victoria.

  2. Well the speech has now been picked up by the Beeb

  3. Nearly all the political bloggers I visit have made a post out of this – I am incredulous that it hasn’t made the mainstream broadcast media.

    I note that EU politicians don’t escape his wrath either in that Brown, like they ” … say one thing here and another to your people back home.”

    I doubt that Hannon will get far in the EU. 🙁

    We need him back here … to help save us from this awful regime.

  4. Kevin, what a powerful video.
