How to SUCCESSFULLY Pitch Your Project at a Writers Conference

Jackie Blain hates to sing her own praises, but geez, somebody ought to. She’s a writer, AND a screenwriter, AND a teacher of both, AND a professional editor and writing coach, AND, for the past ten years or more, she’s been running the Pitch Practice room at the Willamette Writers Conference, which is widely (and justly) regarded as the best such conference on the West Coast.

I know, because for most of those years I’ve been there with her, helping folks craft pitches for novels, screenplays, self-help books, memoir, non-fiction, graphic novels, children’s books and projects so unusual they defy categorization. We’ve helped many hundreds of people discover how to put the best face on their project and pitch it like a pro. And it’s been immensely gratifying to have many of those people return and share their success stories – requests for chapters, pages, outlines, proposals, and in some cases even full manuscripts.

Now, at last, Jackie is sharing her pitch-honing techniques with the rest of the world. This entertaining book leads you step-by-step through the process of making your pitch ready for prime time.

Jackie dishes out solid, time-tested techniques for finding your hook, zeroing in on the heart of your story and crafting pitches for occasions. You’ll know what to say next time you’re in the elevator with Steven Spielberg, and you’ll be ready for the agent who wants an in-depth description.

You’ll find all that and more in HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY PITCH YOUR PROJECT AT A WRITERS CONFERENCE, and you’ll be two legs up on everyone who has NOT read this book. Get it now. At this price, it’s a steal.
