Consulting and Coaching

“If you’re serious about sharpening your skills as a journalist, sign up for Caitlin’s seminars now — all of them. You’ll gain from her hard-earned experience, practical wisdom, and unabashed love for this tough, rewarding, essential calling. She is a gifted teacher and one of the smartest people I’ve ever met.” — freelance writer Robert Lerose



Have you ever dreamed of publishing your writing?

Maybe you’d like to find more readers for your blog and could use some coaching to win them; Broadside was chosen six times by WordPress editors for Freshly Pressed (now named Discover) and named one of their 22 best blogs on culture, with more than 16,000 followers.

Whether you want to write for a digital site like Quartz or Salon, for a major national magazine like Marie Claire or Smithsonian or maybe to conceive of and propose a non-fiction book, I can help!

I’ve done all of these things, have won a National Magazine Award in Canada, the nation’s top honor for journalists and am the recipient of five journalism fellowships.

A former reporter for the Globe & Mail, Montreal Gazette and New York Daily News, I can help you pitch, sell and produce the high quality work that the most demanding editors and clients expect.

In person, via phone and Skype, I’ve taught students worldwide, and helped them publish in The New York Times, the Guardian, and others.

As a journalist with only a few years experience, I appreciated her willingness to share her expertise and experiential wisdom. If you have a chance to take a class with her, don’t hesitate. Great value.

“It was definitely incredibly useful for me.”

— Daniel Malak, public relations, Motionloft

If you’re a public relations professional wanting to up your pitching game, I also review press releases and pitches, and offer practical individual webinars to help you get your story ideas more often read and better used — I recently helped the Jacob Burns Film Center, a respected art film house here in New York.
