THE PITCH with Pilar Alessandra
Saturday, July 16, 2016
10:30 am to 1:00 p.m.
Pitch quickly and pitch well! Whether you’re pitching your book idea to a publisher or your screenplay idea to a producer, this class will help you stay on point and avoid listener tune-out.
Proven pitching tools and a written template help writers define the key elements of their stories.
Writers learn to pitch their ideas in a concise, focused and entertaining manner that emphasizes the hook and eliminates “writer-babble.”
