[CANCELLED] Workshopping Your Perfect Pitch and Quintessential Query with Carlisle Webber

This class has been cancelled.

This is a class co-sponsored by MI and San Francisco Writers Conference/San Francisco Writers Foundation.

This is a hands-on workshop for your specific pitch and query. Carlisle will work with students individually; taking general concepts and helping you craft the ideal pitch and query letter so you can get your writing in the hands of decision making agents and editors. Bring the first 3 chapters of your work in progress as well as a 1-2 page synopsis.

About the Speaker

Carlisle Webber refused to major in English in college because she didn’t think there was anything fun to read on the required lists. No Stephen King? No R.L. Stine? No thanks!

After college, she took her love of commercial, YA, and middle grade fiction to the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences, where she earned a Master of Library and Information Sciences. She worked as a public librarian for years before deciding to move to the business side of publishing. She attended the Columbia Publishing Course, interned at Writers House, and worked at the Jane Rotrosen Agency in New York City.

She considers herself to be an editorial agent and holds a Professional Certificate in Editing from University of California, Berkeley. She belongs to the American Copy Editors Society and Bay Area Editors’ Forum. When editing, she aims to make a book the best possible version of itself, shaping it in a way so it can best use its unique voice to appeal to a wide audience.

Carlisle Webber is an Associate Agent at Fuse Literary.
