The Art of the Pitch
With Andrea Cascardi, Literary Agent
Sure, you’ve had your manuscript critiqued. But what about your pitch? The greatest masterpiece is useless if it’s unread. Querying is important, but being able to “sell” your story verbally is critical. “It’s about this boy…who meets a girl…” is not going to cut it! Never worked on your pitch?  Get something down and bring it with you. Already have a pitch? Here’s your chance to find out if it shines!
Registration includes complimentary wine and cocktail food!!!
