Workshop with Benjamin Scott.

In the run-up to the Agent’s Party in September, what could be better than a chance to fix that pitch?

Sweaty palms, tied tongues, and a blank mind; nothing fills most writers (and illustrators) with more terror than the dark art of pitching. However, this workshop will help you craft a diabolically short pitch that sells your story without the need for torture (unless it’s in the story!). It will put the thumbscrews on what is really at the beating heart of your story: invaluable no matter what stage of creation you are with your idea, whether a first draft, a final draft, or somewhere in between. By the end of the session you’ll come away with a tighter vision for the story and a killer pitch. Please bring a specific project in mind and, if you want brownie points, prepare a 75 to 150 word summary or notes about your story!

Please note that the library cafe is closed on Sundays. Refreshments can be bought at nearby shops and brought into the library meeting room.
