Program Description

Event Description

This interactive session will highlight the benefits and uses of writing a pitch before you begin a new project, and detail ways that pitch can serve you before, during, and after you finish your manuscript. Writers will learn ways to write three types of pitches that build on each other—the concept pitch, the short pitch, the long pitch—and apply them to their own work. This program is beneficial to writers in all stages of their career, from beginners to those who are agented or even published.

This is one of many events happening for LitFest 2022, which runs Aug 20 - Sept 24. For a full list of other programs, visit:
