    Master's Journalism program students and alumni gathered at Georgetown’s Clarendon campus on January 29, 2011 for the first in a series of Saturday workshops. The audio from the workshop is available above. The “How to Pitch” workshop began with a panel of accomplished journalists discussing the kinds of story pitches that top editors at news outlets look for, exploring the do’s and don’ts of pitching, and providing tips on the best ways to sell a story idea. The editors worked one-on-one with students during the small group sessions to help each person come up with, and refine, credible pitch ideas. "How to Pitch" Panelists: Tom Shroder, former editor of The Washington Post Magazine. Shroder’s new book, Fire on the Horizon: The Untold Story of the Gulf Oil Disaster, will be released in March 2011 (HarperCollins). Miranda Kennedy, editor at NPR’s Morning Edition. Kennedy is the author of the soon-to-be released memoir, Sideways on a Scooter (Random House). Ryan Grim, DC Bureau Chief and Senior Political Reporter at The Huffington Post. He is the author of This is Your Country on Drugs (Wiley). Howard Yoon, literary agent and partner of the Ross Yoon Agency in Washington, DC.

                  A few miles outside Port-au-Prince is a government-established camp for displaced people — Camp Corail, the only "official" camp in Haiti. Rows and rows of neatly spaced tents provide shelter for thousands of people. But just past Corail, a more "organic" community has sprouted. Nearly 100,000 squatters have taken things into their own hands and taken to the hills.
