April 2014: Pitch Writing Practice and Critique

Have a fantastic idea for a novel or series? Have you started a novel you’re convinced is a winner? Have you thought about pitching it to an agent? Do you have a pitch prepared? Does the thought of pitching cause you to panic?

Pitching to agents (in person or by letter) is a great way to get a publishing deal. Even if you are an established author, pitching is an important tool of the trade. A supportive group of authors will be sitting together for a practice session on pitching in advance of our workshop with literary agent Jessica Faust. Come present your pitch in a collaborative and safe environment with local authors having a range of experience. Local authors experienced with pitching will be on hand for critiques and pointers.
