From Premise To Pitch: Get Submission Ready With Two Seasoned Agents 2020

May 7 - 10, 2020

Overview

Are you ready to start querying? During this workshop you will learn how to talk about your middle grade or young adult manuscript: how to pitch it, how to describe it, and the difference between the two. You will ensure that the premise of your story will make agents and editors excited to read your manuscript. Focusing equally on craft and marketing, hands-on workshops will help you prepare a pitch, synopsis, and bio. In conjunction with one-on-one manuscript critiques, these exercises will help you to identify weaknesses in your manuscript that must be addressed before you start submitting in today’s competitive publishing market.
