Our December 11 meeting will give you a chance to hone your pitching skills -- not with a baseball, but with your book promotion! Once you’ve written your book, you’ll need some practice describing it quickly and clearly. What will you say to a publisher or literary agent?
December’s SLPA meeting is dedicated to helping you deliver your message in a clear, concise, and compelling manner.
Four key ingredients for a polished pitch are:
- the hook
- the summary
- your target audience
- your qualifications as an author
Up to several attendees will get to practice their one-minute pitch and receive valuable feedback from a panel of publishing and media professionals. (Preference will be given to current members.) The rest of the audience will learn from what the panelists have to say. It will be a great opportunity to learn the art of clear communication.
To top off the meeting, we will celebrate the holiday season with good conversation, networking and light refreshments.
