FEARLESS PITCHING

with Laura Drake

About the Class:
Pitching, it has the power to strike fear in the heart of the most intrepid writer. It also has the power to launch your career, whether you’re pitching on paper, or in person.  This workshop will give you the tools you need to feel confident, and present yourself and your writing in a professional manner. We will cover:
  • Pitching on paper
  • Creating a logline for your novel
  • The all important query – and how to use it as a building block for your pitch
  • Researching agents/editors
  • Etiquette and procedures
  • Pitching in person
  • Different types of pitches, and how to prepare for each
  • Attitude is everything – how to make it work for you
  • Tips and tricks, how to be memorable in a good way
  • Make the most of your opportunities
  • How to manage your fear
Debra HollandAbout the Instructor:
