By Scott Eagan (Greyhaus Literary)
Session Date:Thursday, July 19, 2012 Start Time: 1:00 p.m. EST Run Time: 90 minutes

ABOUT THE CRITIQUE
All registrants are invited to submit a pitch paragraph (200 words or fewer) in advance of the event. All submitted queries are guaranteed a critique by literary agent Scott Eagan.
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Writers often forget that the submission elements—the query, synopsis, pitch, and so forth—all go hand in hand, and must work together to present a book in the best possible light. So the “right” way to submit and pitch your work will vary from project to project. It’s crucial to understand what editors and agents are seeing from their end as they review the packages authors send and decide which ones are worth of further consideration.
How should your pitch, query, bio and synopsis all work together to explain the different elements of your book? How are these elements similar? How are they different? The session will also discuss face-to-face pitch sessions for writers who plan on sitting down with agents soon.
What you’ll learn:
•Attendees will understand the importance of targeting a submission package for individual editors and agents.
•Attendees will learn what the editors and agents are looking for in the submission package or pitch.
•Attendees will, following the webinar’s instruction, be able to examine and tailor each of the elements to better showcase your writing.
