In a moment of madness a few months ago, I booked myself onto a pitching event ‘How to Hook an Agent’ through the Writers&Artists website.
It looks really interesting and the idea is that you learn what makes an effective submission, thereby hopefully reducing your chances of ending up on the slush pile. The most important/nerve-wracking part of the day is getting 10 mins one to one with an agent with the opportunity to pitch your novel.
I’ve never done ANYTHING like this before.
Anyone got any tips or suggestions on how to prepare for it?
