Saturday, June 20, 2015
10:30 am to 1:00 p.m
Whether we’re at a cocktail party, on an airplane, or face to face with an agent or producer, we’re always pitching. Even experienced writers get tongue-tied when it comes to presenting their work aloud in the best possible light. IWOSC is pleased to welcome back one of the best pitching instructors anywhere: Pilar Alessandra, director of the writing program “On the Page.”
In this seminar, you will …
…learn to pitch your ideas in a brief, concise and entertaining manner that emphasizes the hook and eliminates “writer-babble.”
…adapt your pitch for TV, film, Web, or reality.
…develop a “personal pitch” for agency or management representation.
