Pitching to Agents and Publishers

The July meeting of the Maryland Writers Association Baltimore Chapter will be this Monday July 23 at 7 p.m. and will be held at BlueHouse Cafe, 1407 Fleet Street, in Fells Point. Map and directions are here.

Christine Stewart shares her secrets for perfecting your pitch to agents and publishers. Christine is a fiction writer, poet, writer-in-residence at the Creative Alliance, instructor of the Write Here, Write Now workshops, and a founding co-sponsor of the MWA Baltimore Chapter. (Not to mention a nice person and good friend.)

Pitching is one of the most important business skills a writer can develop, and Chris has a lot of experience to share -- you won't want to miss it.

Come and join us this Monday! The meeting is free for members, and first-time guests, or $5 for returning guests.

In the meantime, here are two articles from another expert in the publishing industry, my friend Ally Peltier, as published in Writers Weekly – the world’s largest freelance writing ezine.
