I had a great morning on Saturday talking to members of the St. Louis Writers’ Guild. I was part of a panel on “Perfecting the Pitch” to agents, editors, and publishers. It’s hard to imagine myself as a fount of wisdom, but everyone seemed interested in what I had to say. The other panelists, Margo Dill and Peter Green, had their own unique takes on their experience, so I think we made a good trio.
I’m sure there were writers in the group who had much more experience at pitching than I, but there were also some utter beginners, so I suppose it’s the whole experience of sharing information that mattered. I was grateful to be part of the day.
