ONA DC: Secrets of a Top-Notch Email Newsletter

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA DC

We are excited to hear from Caitlin Dewey of The Washington Post next week.

Have you heard? Blogs are over and email newsletters are here. Tools like MailChimp and Tinyletter make it easier than ever to reach your audience in the space that’s never closed— their inbox. But how do you make sure yours doesn’t end up in the trash?

Caitlin Dewey, editor of the Washington Post’s Intersect blog and creator of the amazing daily newsletter “Links I would chat you if we were friends,” is here to help. She’ll share some of the secrets of her successful newsletter, talk about what makes some of her favorite newsletters great, and even take a look at yours and give you some pointers.

We had been trying to schedule this for May, but all the timing just worked out so we’re doing this one in early June. Thanks to Elizabeth Scheltens at Scripps for hosting and coordinating this excellent evening. Hope you can join us!

— Tiffany, Matt and Jessica


6:45 – 7:15 pm – Mix and mingle
