Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Developing & Writing a Pitch for your Book

The past two years I have worked with several other local authors in Oklahoma City to organize a wonderful writing conference called, “Write Well, Sell Well Oklahoma City.” The first year it was a 1 day conference, the second year it was a day and a half. This year’s conference will be two days on October 23-24, 2015, at the newly opened Crossings Church Community Center in The Village. Registration is available via EventBrite. To give people a preview of the great workshops and breakout sessions which will be offered face-to-face at the conference, the Write Well, Sell Well organizers are offering a series of free, Tuesday evening webinars leading up to the conference. Last night was the first webinar, offered as a Google Hangout, with prolific author Cheri Fuller. The title and description of her webinar, which I helped facilitate, was:

OUT OF THE SLUSH PILE AND INTO THE BOOKSTORE: Tips on Writing the Perfect Pitch for Your Book
How can you, in less than two minutes and with minimum words, generate maximum excitement for your book and convey your concept to an agent, editor, or publishing executive at a writer’s conference–potentially leading to a book contract? Find out in this webinar with veteran, best-selling author of 48 books, Cheri Fuller. Q&A to follow.

The archive of this 61 minute webinar / Google Hangout On Air is available as a free video on YouTube, and linked from the Write Well, Sell Well Webinars page.

Please check out the video (if you were not able to join us live last night) and share it with others you know who are writing, have written, or are interested in writing a book!

Also make plans to join us for our second webinar in this series on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at 7 pm Central time. Our guest and presenter will be author and screenwriter Rene Gutteridge, who will share a presentation titled, “TAKING FLIGHT: Launching Your Writing Dreams.” The session description is:

In this webinar from Write Well Sell Well, novelist and screenwriter Rene Gutteridge will discuss the challenges and fun of adapting her novel SKID into a feature film (and the 20 year journey to get there), and give practical tips to aspiring artists and writers on how to realize their own dreams. Nothing is impossible! Q&A to follow.

The RSVP and webinar “join link” is available on Google+. We hope you will join us online on September 1, and in person for Write Well, Sell Well 2015 on October 23-24!
