How to pitch

August 3, 2017 | Leave a Comment

On Travel, Write, Earn, James Durston interviews Lola Akinmade Åkerström—photographer and author—on how to pitch a travel article. “Lola put together 87 pitches during 2016,” Durston writes, “with a 43% success/assigned rate.” Here’s her analysis of assignments, rejections, and everything in between.

Those are impressive results, as one would expect from a writer disciplined and generous enough to keep track of all her own stats, analyze them, and share what she learned. Thanks, Lola!
