Monthly Meeting: Finding Your Pitch Voice with Authors Lindsay Leslie and Samantha M Clark

Date(s) - 04/10/2021
9:30 am - 11:00 am



Condensing your story idea down to one or two sentences just seems evil, but a necessary evil. Being able to pitch is a great tool and it will serve you at various times of your career: meeting an agent or editor at a conference or retreat, participating in a Twitter pitch event, connecting with a bookseller, talking to potential readers in the grocery line, etc. Join authors Lindsay Leslie and Samantha M Clark to learn how to embrace pitching and feel confident about it. We’ll also break into groups where you can practice and help each other in preparation for using your tools at the Austin SCBWI Writers and Illustrators Working Conference on May 1-2.


The meeting will be open at 9:30am for members to connect and share news, then the panel will begin at 10am.
