Make That Pitch Count

March 28, 2019
7 p.m. CDT

Often writers face an agent, editor, or representative for a publisher and have no idea how to “pitch” their manuscript in order to make a good impression. Many authors do not realize how important it is to research and practice in preparation for a pitch. This workshop takes the author through the process that ends in a pitch that can spark the interest of an agent, editor, or publisher.
