“The Tiny Art of Elevator Pitches: Making Every Word Count!” with Carrie Lofty

Enrollment Information at http://www.occrwa.org/onlineclassNov10.html
COST: $20 for OCC members, $30 for non-members
If you have specific questions, email occrwaonlineclass@yahoo.com

ABOUT THE CLASS:

You have 30 seconds to make an impression. But how do you reduce tens of thousands of words down to 30 or less? What to leave in? What to ignore? How to give those 30 words punch and drama?

An “elevator pitch” can be defined as a bare-bones summary of your novel – but it is really something much more. This succinct distillation can help not only in query letters and networking, but in finding your hook and focusing your writing before you even start!

Author Carrie Lofty will share the elevator pitches that got her in the door, along with her techniques for making them concise and effective. She will look at the four plot arcs of any romance novel—hero, heroine, external, and romantic—and teach you how to weave all four into the most powerful elevator pitch possible.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:


Since completing her master’s degree in history, Carrie Lofty has been devoted to raising two precocious daughters and writing full time. Her historical romances have all received four stars from RT Book Reviews, which declared: “Lofty writes adventure romance like a born bard of old.”

In addition to two new historical romances coming out in 2011, her “Dark Age Dawning” trilogy of hot-n-dirty apocalyptic romances, co-written with Ann Aguirre under the name Ellen Connor, will kick off with Nightfall from Berkley Sensation in June.
