Selling Your Book: Elevator Pitches, Hooks, and Back Cover Copy

Instructor: 
Weekend June 23 to June 24 2018

One of the most essential components of writing and selling fiction is how quickly and strongly you’re able to snare your audience. Having a strong hook is not only a good marketing strategy, it can also improve and strengthen your writing. In this workshop, we will discuss ways to sell our books to readers, agents, editors, and ourselves with highly-crafted, sharply-honed hooks and elevator pitches. We’ll use in-class writing prompts as well as discussions of pieces you bring from home to further our understanding of how to create marketable, sought-after fiction.
