How do you write a pitch letter that stands out? What should you emphasize? How do publishers make their decisions? Longtime publisher and editor-in-chief Michael Mirolla gives practical tips on how to present your work in the best light when pitching to publishers. Participants are encouraged to bring a pitch letter that they have written (work-in-progress welcome) to the workshop, where they will receive feedback.
