Get ready for conference season by honing, practicing, and perfecting your pitch with me! Over phone or Skype, I'll help you rewrite your pitch to focus on exactly what an edit wants to hear in a pitch session. I'll ask questions to get to the heart of your project and craft the most compelling sales tool you have: yourself! Then we'll practice your pitch until you become comfortable with it.
At this time, you can also ask questions about conference expectations and the publishing perspective from a seasoned editor who has attended dozens of writers conferences and heard hundreds of pitches.
