The afternoon session of this workshop has booked out. Due to popular demand, Clare is running this morning session.
Pitching your work is a flexible process, as with most things connected to publishing, there’s no magic formula for success. There are, however, techniques, foibles, styles and publisher preferences. We’ll be excavating the difference between a pitch, a blurb and a synopsis, looking at submission guidelines, sharing tips from established writers, publishers and editors, and developing a pitch, blurb and synopsis for our work in progress.
This is the final workshop in our Novel in a Year series, with 10 different writers guiding you through the key elements of novel writing.
You will learn
- The differences between “pitch”, “blurb” and “synopsis”
- How not to pitch to a publisher
- Determine what kind of novel you’ve written
- The importance of following submission guidelines
- The differences between “plot”, “story” and “character arc”
