LMHQ Women’s Breakfast: The Newsletter Comeback

Date: 02/20/2020

Time: 8:30am
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th Floor, New York NY
Fee: $5

It’s the age of social media — or is it? In recent years, the newsletter has been revived as a key strategy for building a large and loyal following, and some publishers are seeing their newsletter audiences grow at an exponential rate. From independent newsletters that cover grassroots action and politics to curated big media blasts from some of the largest publishers, this medium is really reaching people — without manipulating a social media algorithm. The self-publishing and monetizing newsletter platform Substack has received $15.3 million in VC funding, a testament to how the newsletter may start to really bring in revenue for publishers. At LMHQ’s February Women’s Breakfast, the journalists and editors at the top of this game will discuss all things newsletter, from outlining how-tos and best practices to how the newsletter has changed the way writers and publications engage with their audiences.
 
Speakers include:
 
Nisha Chittal, Engagement Editor, Vox.com, Nisha's Internet Tote Bag
Jessanne Collins, Director of Newsletters, The New Yorker
Maya Kosoff, pithy outcomes
Edith Zimmerman, Drawing Links
 
 
Doors open at 8:30 AM for bagels and coffee and an opportunity for networking, and the program kicks off at 9:00 AM sharp.
 
This event is sponsored by Verizon.
