Pitch Wars Webinars Presents…
The first of two special small group educational series….
Pitch Perfect: Craft the perfect hook to sell your book to agents, editors, reviewers, and readers with Colleen Oefelein
Craft the perfect hook to sell your book to agents, editors, reviewers, and readers. Pitch Perfect is a week-long, online workshop held inside a secret Facebook group and led by author and Literary Agency PR Manager/Associate Agent, Colleen Oefelein (author CM McCoy). In this workshop, authors cook their manuscript down to its juiciest bits and craft a 20-35 word pitch. We cover the anatomy of a pitch, see successful pitch examples (from queries, in-person pitches, and TV interviews), and craft an effective query letter inside a fun, friendly, interactive workshop. Those who wish to shine up their #PitchWars Pitch submission get an opportunity to do so and receive personal feedback/critique from me and the other participants. **Note — This workshop is a critique, not an evaluation of the author’s work, and the author’s work will not be considered for representation through this workshop.**
The Details . . .
When: The program will be self-paced during the week of June 3-10 and is expected to take about five hours.
Please note: Registration is limited to the first FIVE (5) participants
Check back next week to register for Colleen’s second small group program: Why am I Getting Rejected? Which will take place June 10-17 in a similar environment.
About Colleen Oefelein.. . .
Colleen Oefelein (author CM McCoy) has one pointed ear, a 70-pound puppy from Hell, and a very active imagination. She’s well aware nobody can say or spell her real last name, hence the pen name. You can call her Colleen. She’s a retired Air Force officer, an author, a blogger, and the PR manager for Inklings Literary Agency, where she’s also an agent assistant. When she’s not chatting with her imaginary friends, she’s either stuck in a book or interviewing with PEOPLE Magazine, ABC’s 20/20, the local morning news show, or INSIDE EDITION, where she promotes writing for mental and emotional health. She also mentors pre-published authors through workshops and contests and runs Totem Head’s Annual Free Writing Contest for Kids, now in its eighth year. Though she holds a BS in both Chemical Engineering and German, she’s far happier writing near misses and awkward kisses. Some of her off-the-wall talents include speaking in 10-codes (which she learned working 911-dispatch for Alaska State Troopers), flying helicopters, and Irish dance.

About Pitch Wars Webinars . . .
The Pitch Wars webinar series was developed to help writers at every stage of their careers. Mentors and industry experts will host webinars focused on pitching, publishing, developing craft, and more.
Pitch Wars is a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors work with their mentees for two months before an agent round. Learn more.
