Publish or Perish: Pitching Your Work

All Levels | In this jump start for new and mid-career freelancers, we will open up the latest in our folders of stories, essays, and poems for constructive feedback. We’ll workshop two works (and pitches for each) per student and discuss the ways to best approach agents—literary, talent, and public speaking. In-class discussions will include writing feedback, correspondence with agents, and more. We’ll talk about generating pitch ideas, building a portfolio, talking to editors, sending cold pitches, developing editorial relationships, and networking.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
