With the RWA Conference venue now confirmed as Orlando, its time for those attending to dig out their pitch speech and give it some attention.
Depending on your personality, pitching to an agent or editor can produce stress to varying degrees. Sadly, my first pitch was delivered with little confidence. The fact that I was probably suffering from jet lag too might have attributed to my overly nervous state. I’m fairly sure my hands were shaking, but the good news is delivering the pitch didn’t kill me! And the agent was super kind.
While none of us can claim to have the crystal ball to guarantee the agent you pitch to will love your story, we are keen to help you deliver the best pitch you can. To help you gather the information you might need to improve your pitch we’ve included a few links to agent blogs that have discussed the subject in depth.
So, what we are looking for this month is what you have now, today. Rather than make you wait a week, we’d like to see where you are starting from and we will give you another opportunity to repost any changed pitch over the next two consecutive Fridays.
Just in case the posting comments to the blog proves difficult, please email your pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org
