Pitch Perfect: How to Get Your Writing Published in Top Publications

Everything you need to know to get published in prestigious publications like Forbes, Fortune, and Fast Company.

You've always been a good writer and want to share your writing with a large audience...but you don't know where to start. I've been there.

After graduating from college, I became a paralegal at a law firm in New York City. Amidst stacks of briefs, blue books, and binders, I realized how much I missed writing, creativity, and truly having ownership of a project so I started a blog, Elana Lyn. While I checked brief citations and compiled velo-bound documents, scheduled posts would go out on topics relevant to millennial women.

As Elana Lyn became more popular, I gained confidence in my ability to write professional and personal development advice that people wanted to read. I started to pitch other publications and now my writing has been published in Forbes, Fortune, TIME, Women's Health, Business Insider, Fast Company, Mashable, Refinery 29, POPSUGAR, Brit + Co, The Huffington Post, and more. I am a contributor at Forbes, Monster, and Thrive Global.

It took some trial and error, but I figured out a winning strategy for pitching top publications, writing popular articles, establishing relationships with editors, and becoming a contributor.

And now I'm sharing everything you need to know to get published in your dream publications. Let's get started!

But don't take it from me! Here are some reviews:

This. Was. Incredible. If you are interested in finding your voice and taking an amplifier to it, Elana Lyn's Pitch Perfect is necessary reading material. From learning how much monetary compensation you can expect as a freelance writer to the EXACT pitch copy that has gotten Elana into every publication from Forbes to Refinery29, this course is a steal, and trust me, you are going to share this with evvvveryyyybody. -Katie Schloss, Designer & Digital Content Strategist

"Elana's pitching course was the most helpful way to jump into the freelance process! She broke everything down clearly and took us step-by-step through how to go from ideation to publication. Despite having previous experience working in the media, I was blown away by how easy she made the process and spelled it out. Looking forward to seeing my name in print again thanks to Elana!" -Megan M., PR

"The Pitch Perfect course was so helpful! It provided clear actionable tips to have articles published. The real-life examples really helped me identify how I can improve my pitch and speak to different audiences. I know that I will continue to refer back to the course materials to be sure I'm putting my best foot forward and reaching out to the right people. Thanks, Elana." -Alyson G., career coach

"Elana's course is FAB.U.LOUS. She lays out her tips in an easy-to-understand format that make you feel like you're having a conversation with your best friend, and those tips are gold. Y'all have seen her success. The advice goes beyond the basics; after discussing different aspects of curating your pitch, from voice to researching the appropriate person and more, Elana provides an outline and then numerous examples. Pitch writing has never been my forte (much to the chagrin of my former PR boss), but this content has me actually excited to get back into it! If you want to up your pitch game and see your byline, this is a course you need." -Nicole, PR

"Elana's class is AWESOME. I had considered myself fairly decent and experienced at pitching and 'cold emailing' but I learned a lot from her tips and tricks, especially with respect to finding the right editor. I also loved the email template and formula, but my favorite was probably the helpful glossary at the end. There were terms in there that I had never even heard of, and now I feel so prepared to contact any editor. The best part is that I'm not even a writer looking to pitch a publication to get my writing published; I'm a small business owner who plans to use this helpful info and adapt it to spread the word about my product. Can't recommend this course enough for those interested in crafting pitches that will get noticed!" -Nur-E, entrepreneur
