Online Course: Pitching to Publishers

posted in Online Writing Courses on 12 April, 2017

Australian Writers' Marketplace presents 'Pitching to Publishers', a 4 week online course that will guide you through the process of developing and refining your author pitch. The next course starts on 8 May 2017.

In this month-long course you will work together with your tutor and fellow participants to create a pitch for a publisher that will grab their attention and a proposal that will keep them reading beyond the first sentence. Each week a new lesson will be posted with content, audios and exercises for you to sink your teeth into.

Your tutor will support you to hone your pitch and your proposal so that you can show off your creative work to its best advantage and take it to the next stage in the publishing process.
In this course, you will:
  • learn how to create an attention-grabbing elevator pitch
  • develop a complete proposal packet you can take to agents and publishers
  • learn what publishers look for and what turns them off
  • discover the steps to writing a winning query letter
You will have the opportunity to read a number of proposal ideas, as well as drafts of proposals, during this course – mostly from your fellow writers – so you will be able to hone your skills by reading them and offering constructive, supportive comment.

The course is $150 and will be run by Tiana Templeton.
