– L: Give your information a Local angle
– I: Think about how it will Impact the readers. In other words, why would they care?
– N: News means it is New. What is different about what you’re offering?

By the end of the class, you’ll learn who (and how) to contact in the media. You’ll know how to look at stories from the press’ point of view, how to recognize a news peg and put it first in your e-mail to your contacts, plus find out the things fashion writers don’t want. Most importantly, you’ll know how to see media as friends and colleagues.

Eden Dawn (yes, that is her real name) spends her life submerged in fashion as a stylist, writer, and tastemaker. Born and raised in Oregon, she began her style career while still a child, by cheerfully violating numerous dress codes at her private school before turning that troublemaking into her trademark as one of Oregon’s top fashion experts.
The project enthusiastic style lover spends her time as a freelance wardrobe stylist and fashion writer. Not only does she provide regular contributions to Portland Monthly's (Oregon’s award winning magazine) fashion content, style commercial and editorial jobs, and talk about trends frequently on television.
