Perfecting the Pitch: An SWG Event

November 21 and 21: 2:00 to 4:00 pm each day (online)

How do you condense the depth of characters, excitement of plot and the beautiful prose of your 300-page masterpiece into a one- or two-page synopsis? And that damn query letter…what grabs their attention and how do you write it! And how much is too much when the agent or publisher asks for a ‘sample’? And what the hell is an Artist Statement anyway?

Using tools gained over many submissions to agents, publishers and granting agencies, I will will lead participants through the maze of the perfect pitch. Many of my pitches have been successful. Some not. But I’ve learned new tricks with each and been told by publishers, agents and grant coordinators, big and small, that in the case of my pitch, it’s good, it works.

I’ll share some insight with emerging writers to take some of the mystery and fear out of the process of the sometimes-baffling world of publishing. If you want my credentials, check out the About page on this site:) And then please join me!
