Practice Your Pitch

The Fourth Wednesday Writers Group meets at the Camp Hill Barnes and Noble from 6 - 9 pm on (that's right) the Fourth Wednesday of every month. Normally we spend our time critiquing each others writing and helping one another improve our products.

However, with the upcoming conferences (Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Conference in March. and Pennwriters in May) we'll spend our meetings in February and March helping writers perfect their pitch. Mike Silvestri will lead the discussion in February on how to effectively pitch your novel to an agent or editor. Then in March, we'll give each writer a chance to practice what they've learned. You normally get about five minutes to pitch your novel so you need to make every second count. This is a great opportunity to get ready to meet that agent or editor.

It is recommended you have a completed novel so you're ready to send it in. So come on, what are you waiting for. Mike is experienced and ready to share that experience.

Questions should be addressed to Mike or to myself, Don Helin.

Good luck and get ready to come out pitching.
