There Are Three Sides to Every Story. 

PR pros, freelance writers and editors need each other. When we come together, we can tell stories with impact.

Welcome to Pitchcraft, the first premium membership designed to help you understand what journalists want. Through our one-of-a-kind community, you’ll learn this straight from the journalists themselves. Prioritizing relationships over transactions, we help you navigate the major transition happening in media right now and earn meaningful coverage for your clients or brand.

  • The ability to break through amidst the hundreds of pitches journalists receive daily
  • An endless flow of creativity to continually come up with innovative story angles
  • A simple resource to save hours of research time so you can focus on actual pitching

You want—and need—to do all of these things to succeed in the new world of digital media, but you can only do so much. Stop wishing and become a part of the Pitchcraft community.

Who's Behind It?


Pitchcraft was founded on the connections, creativity and community honed by Kelsey Ogletree, a Medill-trained independent journalist who’s written and edited for national media for more than a decade. Her pitching philosophy? Focusing on relationships and strong story development. Pitchcraft is the evolution of Office Hours, a series she hosted from 2020-2021 that sold out every session.
