To prepare for our Agent/Editor Spectacular, we’re delighted to have experienced Pitch Wars mentor, Kim Long, lead a workshop on how to write the perfect pitch for your book!
This is a helpful workshop even if you don’t participate in our Spectacular because you’ll always have to write a good pitch for your book no matter what stage of publishing you’re in. Description:
During this workshop, Kim will give a 15-minute presentation followed by 45 minutes of individual pitch feedback for attendees. If you sign up for this workshop, you have the option of submitting your pitch to be critiqued. Just check the Extras option box that will pop up after you select your ticket and then use this Jotform to upload your pitch to. These are due BY OCTOBER 6, 2023, so Kim has a week before the workshop to prepare her comments. These critique slots are available on a first come, first served basis, up to 12 people. Kim will try to get through as many of them as she can in the workshop; there’s no guarantee she will get to yours.
Kim Long is a middle grade author and seven-time Pitch Wars middle grade mentor. Her debut novel, Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament was a Texas Bluebonnet Master List Selection in 2021-2022. Her debut nonfiction middle grade book, How to Catch a Cryptid, will be out in February 2025. When not writing, she enjoys biking, board games, and hanging out with friends and family.
