Pitch Perfect: Strategies to Successfully Query, Pitch, and Talk about Your Writing to Agents
Do you want to take meetings, prepare query letters, and try to break into book publishing? Let literary agent Steven Salpeter walk you through the strategies to discuss and submit your work effectively, and avoid the most common many authors make in the pitch, query, and submission processes. This course will cover an overview of the book publishing process after your manuscript is written, including how to find a literary agent, how to talk about your writing, how to submit your writing, and an introduction to the book publishing process from the time you have representation to when you’re on shelves. This is great for authors in the middle of the project, to those getting ready to submit their book length fiction or nonfiction, or for those folks who might have submissions out there and want to perfect their submission material.
