08/31 How to Write a Pitch, Query and Synopsis with Jennifer Silva Redmond
“What’s your book about?” We get asked that question all the time, but most of us spend very little time figuring out how to effectively answer it. Pitching your book is key to selling it—whether you’re an author-publisher or are sending query letters to agents or publishers. You also need to know how to summarize your story in a longer form if you’re asked to write a synopsis. Jennifer Redmond, long-time acquisitions editor and popular “Pitch Witch” will lead a hands-on workshop on pitching, querying and writing a synopsis.
Long-time editor-in-chief and acquisitions editor at award-winning Sunbelt Publications, Jennifer Silva Redmond is now a publishing consultant and editor, as well as a popular instructor and speaker. Her essays, articles, and fiction have been published in anthologies, magazines, and books; she teaches at the Southern California Writers Conference, San Diego Writers, Ink, was prose editor for A Year in Ink vol 3, and co-founder of the critically acclaimed “Sea of Cortez Review.” Her latest role is independent film producer at WorkWithMeFilms; the original screenplay “El Camino” (her third script co-written with husband Russel Redmond) is in pre-production. She is always looking for “great new stuff” and has a wide circle of agents, editors, and publishers with whom to share marketable fiction and non-fiction.
