The challenge in pitching any story to a major newspaper involves knowing what the story is, obtaining enough information to write an engaging and informative pitch, and having the right connections within the publication.

"Cynthia Flash has worked with the Estate Planning Council of Seattle for five years and has made a tremendous impact to our organization. She is always looking for ways to increase the public's awareness of our organization and the services our members can provide. Because of Cynthia and her dogged attention to detail we have been extensively featured in the Puget Sound Business Journal's estate planning supplement for the last three years. She has also coordinated inserts and specially written features in many other local newspapers and magazines, as well as on the radio and in public forum discussions. I would recommend Cynthia to anyone who wants to get their story out to the media. She is personable, creative, conscientious, trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with."
