You’ve got 10 minutes to deliver the perfect pitch and hook an agent into asking for more – but how do you boil down a full novel into just 10 minutes?
Learn exactly what to say – – and what not to say – – in Chris Mandeville’s Perfect Your Pitch class!
Pitch guru Chris Mandeville will not only help you create a selling pitch, but her online class will help you to understand your book better.
And don’t forget – she’s on site the day of for writers to polish their pitches with her!
Ultimate Pitchfest offers this class at a deeply discounted rate so you can be confident and prepared when you pitch your manuscript. The agents were effusive about the quality of our writers’ pitches — we think this is the reason why!
The class is divided into short video lessons, each taking you through a different component of the pitch. After working through all the lessons and work sheets, you’ll be confident in what to say during your pitch, every step of the way.
How the class works:
Each lesson includes a podcast and a worksheet. These are delivered digitally–you work through the lessons on your own time from the comfort of your own computer.
- Know your material (your project) inside and out
- Deliver your story in a nutshell–the logline
- What to say-and what not to say-about yourself
- Know what questions to ask and what to be prepared to answer
- Putting it all together–the “one sheet”
- Seeing it in action–the pitching demo
- Bonus: tips and tricks to overcome anxiety
Do you have to pitch at the Ultimate Pitchfest to take Chris’s class? Absolutely not! Use these lessons to prepare yourself to talk about your project intelligently and enticingly in any environment — from query letters to in-person pitches, from interviews to cocktail parties.
