(The pitches will be chosen at random, with a live 3 min pitch to the room, where the pitch (not the manuscript) is then critiqued by Alex).

You will learn:
the different publishing departments and where a literary agent sits in the process
what an agent can do for you, and when you don’t need one
sneaky tricks and traps of publishing contracts
publishing scams to watch out for
the different ways to pitch to publishers and agents (and what not to do)
