2015 National Association of Black Journalists

We were at the annual conference of the National Association of Black Journalists from August 5-9 in Minneapolis, MN.

Session: Pitch Slam #NABJ40pitch

The Pitch Slam presents a rare opportunity for participants to pitch work directly to science and health editors looking for new talent. This high-energy experience is a tangible opportunity that has evolved into an NABJ tradition and previous Pitch Slams have generated freelance assignments for participants. Come take part and vie to become one of this year’s success stories.
