Leading this free workshop is someone who has sat on both sides of the pitching table—author and lecturer, Brad R. Cook. Participants will learn what goes in a face-to-face pitch, as well as what to expect from a remote pitch session. He’ll touch on query letters, using your time, what to include, and just what is an elevator pitch! Plus, he’ll explore tools to find agents and publishers online and at conferences.
Upcoming conferences include the Guild’s half-day conference – Writers in the Lodge (March 7) – and Penned Con (Sept. 17-19), both in St. Louis; Archon (Oct. 2-4) in Collinsville, IL; and the Society of Book Writers and Illustrators’ Middle of the Map conference (Nov. 6-8) in Kansas City.
“I can’t guarantee you’ll find an agent, but you’ll have the tools to do so!” Brad said.
Brad R. Cook is the author of The Iron Chronicles (treehouse publishing group) and Steamtree: The Airdrainium Adventure (Broadsword Books). A former co-publisher and acquisitions editor for Blank Slate Press, he currently serves as Historian of St. Louis Writers Guild after three and half years as President. He learned to fence at thirteen, and never set down his sword, but prefers to curl up with a centuries’ old classic. Find more at BradRCook.com
