Selling Yourself and Your Writing: Networking, Elevator Pitches, One-Sheets, and Proposals
Presented by MTCW President Kaye Dacus
Summer and autumn are considered to be conference season—though there really are conferences all throughout the year. But whether you’re attending a conference for the first time or the tenth, there’s always more we can learn about how to position ourselves and our writing in person and on paper to give us the highest chance of signing with that dream agent or editor.
Topics covered include:
-Networking–The Soft Sell
-Creating the Perfect (or at least Perfectly Captivating) Elevator Pitch
-Creating Content for and Desigining Your One-Sheet(s)
-Proposals—what are they, what goes into them
-(If time allows) Be prepared to pitch your novel to the group, if you choose
*Fellowship time from 9:00 to 9:30. Workshop begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. and should end by 11:30, with a time for introductions from 11:30 to noon.
