As a veteran of numerous pitches to editors and agents, I’m often asked for advice on how to survive that all-important pitch session. Panic-Free Pitching is an interactive workshop that gives practical hints and tips, an invaluable list of dos and don’ts and all the necessary tools to make the most of your appointment.
Based on the phrase ‘Preparation is the key’, the workshop covers Mental Preparation, Physical Preparation and Work Preparation.
Panic-Free Pitching has been given at chapter meetings, the NJRW conference and the Romance Writers of Australia conference. Articles based on the workshop have also appeared in various chapter newsletters, including NTRWA. Many attendees have been delighted by the results; for a number, their post-workshop pitch was their first successful pitch, after several failures!
