Workshopping Your Perfect Pitch and the Quintessential Query

This is a hands-on workshop for your specific pitch and query. Laurie 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.
