About the course….
Gearing up for the RWAust conference in just a couple of months?
Excited but silently terrified about the opportunity to pitch your book to an editor or agent?
“Pitch Like a Professional”is a four-week conference primer designed to getyour synopsis, query letter, in-person pitch (and you!) glinting with readiness.
Each week will focus on one aspect of the pitching and submission skillset. As well as learning the secrets to successful submission, you will work on your own synopsis, query letter and pitch and then have an (optional) private session with your trainer to practice your pitch in a safe, one-on-one, face-to-face environment and get some feedback.
