Want to learn how to throw a strike when pitching your novel or novella to an editor or agent?  Learn the basics of pitching your story at a conference – whether it’s in a formal pitching session or a chance meeting in the elevator.

Class instructor, Julie Hurwitz, who served at the RWA national level as an Editor/Agent Appointment Chair and the Regional 6 director, will discuss the elements that an editor or agent looks for when evaluating a story pitch, how to narrow your story down to a single logline and how to follow up on a request to see your material from an editor or agent.  And, participants will learn some invaluable techniques to help relax and ensure a positive outcome. 


With her degree from Indiana University, Julie has worked in the television industry for over 20 years on such series as “Midnight Caller”, “Reasonable Doubts”, “Silk Stalkings”, “Pacific Blue” and “North Shore.”  She combines a unique blending of television experience with her own writing.  Writing as Chloe Devlin, she has sold several short erotic stories to Xcite Books/Accent Press and is currently writing an erotic romance.
