The idea that journalists actually pitch stories never actually occurred to me before reading the text at http://www.freep.com/legacy/jobspage/toolkit/pitch.htm. I suppose this is because the only newswriting experience I have is with the Setonian and I just have my story assignments handed to me. I think the advice for pitching stories provided in this source was sound and useful though. I am now determined, before the end of the semester, to find, research, and pitch my own story the one of the editors of the Setonian... I will post on my blog about how this process is going.
