PITCH & PACKAGE: HOW TO TALK ABOUT YOUR WORK AND WRITE ABOUT YOUR PROJECTS TO MAKE A MARKET-AWARE AND SAVVY IMPRESSION--SARAH SHUMWAY, DUTTON EDITOR
I ask you, who wouldn't be interested in attending this workshop? The flyer describes it thusly,
Get INSIDER INFORMATION (emphasis mine) about how and why a submission can turn into an acquisition. Plus, learn effective ways an author might pitch and package submissions to best represent the work and convince an editor of success. Bring a project for which you'd like to refine a pitch. Hands-on components: create a 'title information' sheet, plus consider competition, and develop a 'hook' for a book.
Wow! That's a workshop I want to attend, but, "Pitch & Package" is being held at the same time as The Write Sisters' workshop: THE WRITE SISTERS: BUILD, MAINTAIN, & IGNITE YOUR WRITERS' GROUP. Oh well.
It appears that the conference organizers will have to find some way to limit attendees at "Pitch & Package." So, if you are one of those who will have to find another workshop to attend, let me give you a few reasons to attend ours.
Take a chance with The Write Sisters and come to our workshop if you're closed out of your first choice. You may make contact there with others who are looking for a group, and that alone is worth the effort!
