Writers, find out how to pitch quickly and pitch well!

Whether you as a writer are pitching your book/novel 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 for writers and a written template are provided, to help authors define the key elements of their stories.

At this seminar, Pilar guides writers as we learn to pitch our ideas in a concise, focused, and entertaining manner – one that emphasizes the hook and eliminates “writer-babble.”

As a writer, you never know when the chance to sell your book or screenplay may pop up. Don’t let it pass you by!

Be prepared, and learn to pitch your writing with panache and excitement.
