Okay, are you ready for Day Three of the Perfect Your Pitch workshop?! We are! Today, we’ve got Peter Knapp of The Park Literary Group dispelling his wisdom.
One of my favorite parts: “As you write and then revise your query, remember back to when it was just an idea unfurling in some corner of your mind. What was the emotional hook, the thing that made this the idea you just had to write? Which relationship or relationships lend emotional credence to the premise—that’s to say, elevate the premise from a scenario to a story. Once you’ve figured this out, you may want to frame your premise and plot through the lens of this relationship when writing your pitch.”
GO HERE TO SEE THE ENTIRE ARTICLE. It’s well worth your while as you polish and prepare that pitch. Your query letter will thank you.
Thanks to Pete, who will be participating in our mid-winter Pitch-Fest in just one month! You can get your pitch critiqued and genre honed in our forum.
