Publish or Perish: Pitching Your Work [Amee Bhavsar]
All Levels | In this jump start for new and mid-career freelancers, we will open up the latest in our folders of stories, essays, and poems for constructive feedback. We’ll workshop two works (and pitches for each) per student and discuss the ways to best approach agents—literary, talent, and public speaking. In-class discussions will include writing feedback, correspondence with agents, and more. We’ll talk about generating pitch ideas, building a portfolio, talking to editors, sending cold pitches, developing editorial relationships, and networking.
