The Perfect Pitch


More and more often, writers have opportunities to pitch their work directly to publishers: at writers’ conferences, festivals, online. This workshop outlines how to have that perfect pitch on the tip of your tongue. Participants will develop two pitches: a short “elevator” pitch, and a longer pitch suitable for a one-on-one appointment.


This event is offered free of charge to participants, thanks to the generous support of Townsville City Council.


NOTE: This workshop is one of two workshops being presented by Queensland Writers Centre on this date.  You may also be interested in ‘Education Writing for Children’ with Pamela Rushby.
