A practical, hands-on introduction to using the mainstream media for advocacy.
This two-hour workshop will combine theory and practical interview simulations. Learn about the media landscape, how to package and pitch stories, winning media messages, how to prepare for media interviews, common journalist tactics and interviewing skills.
At the Economic Media Centre, we support economic thinkers and people with lived experience of economic policies to set economic agendas in mainstream media. Register to attend this small-group session to learn more about campaign media and becoming a media spokesperson.
It will include a breakout activity for participants to pair up and go into zoom breakout rooms and practice interviewing each other 1-1 for a long-form media slot (4-5 min).
