Pitch Your Book So Publishers Pay Attention

Advanced | Agents and publishers are flooded with more queries than ever before. How can you cut through the noise and get noticed? Let’s step back and look at your fiction or nonfiction work with fresh eyes. We’ll identify what makes your project unique, marketable, and irresistible to publishing gatekeepers, and then, with lots of examples and time for practice and feedback, work on verbal “elevator pitches,” one-paragraph hooks, and 1-2 page synopses. This class includes a lunch break.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
