Tips for Crafting a “Got-to-Read-This” Pitch by Agent Jennifer March Soloway on July 20th!

So you've finally finished your novel or picture book, and you're ready to query agents. Or maybe you've been querying, but you've only received rejections­­ or worse, not heard back at all. Now is the time to revisit your pitch to make sure it's enticing and succinct. In this session, I'll give you insight about what it's like to read submissions and how I manage my query box, including the types of projects I find most compelling. We will discuss what it takes to stand out in a sea of slush and do several exercises to help you identify which elements of your story to pitch, as well as what not to include, to best hook your reader (or an agent or editor)

This is also a great opportunity to prepare for our Pitch Clinic at the Golden Gate Day Conference!
