How to Write an Elevator Pitch

Join the Coast Chapter of Willamette Writers with Catherine Rickbone and Anne Ettel on September 16 from 2 – 3:30 PM at the Newport Public Library. How to Write an Elevator Pitch is the focus on Saturday, September 16 (doors open at 2 PM) from 2:00-3:30 PM of the Willamette Writers Coast Chapter at the Newport Public Library, in-person only. Coast Chapter Co-Chairs Catherine Rickbone and Anne Ettel bring fresh tips from the August Willamette Writers Conference and will facilitate this workshop on how to promote yourself and your writing through pitches.

Do you ever wonder what you would say if you came face to face with an editor, agent, or publisher? What if you needed to introduce yourself at a conference—or explain your published book or a work in progress?

Participants will practice drafting a pitch or revising a pitch draft they have completed. The purpose is to learn a technique and receive encouragement. This workshop is beneficial for all writers no matter what their genre or where they are in the writing process. After the program, there will be time for networking. The meeting is free and open to the public.

This program is co-hosted by the Newport Public Library.
