Our editorial staff are beginning to plan out the Fall 2023 issue of UMBC Magazine, and as always, we love to hear ideas from all over campus. To that end, we will have two virtual pitch party opportunities, on June 28 from 2 – 3 p.m. and on July 6 from 11 a.m. – noon. We would love to see you there!
What’s a “pitch party,” you ask? Well, it’s an informal drop-in gathering where you can pitch any and all story ideas.
What kinds of stories are we looking for? As always, we’re looking for ways of telling the UMBC story on a broad scale, to highlight the good work and experiences of students, alumni, staff, and faculty alike. We’re looking for stories that will help anyone who picks up the magazine understand who we are as a community — and why they should join us! That could mean sharing info about cool alumni who are doing interesting work, campus initiatives that excite you, great examples of faculty-student mentorship, and other ways that Retrievers are rising to the top. Hearing from all of you is vital to creating the most well-rounded (and just overall interesting) version of the magazine.
How do I join in? And what if I can’t make it? Please RSVP by emailing managing editor Randianne Leyshon ’09 at email@example.com, and be sure to tell her which date you want to attend. If you can’t make it, you can also email her your ideas at any point.
Thanks in advance, and please share with those you think might be interested!
