Market Monday: Pitch Your Work, Short Story Contest for Unpublished authors open
Posted by Lisa Lickel on June 4, 2012
Here’s a site I came across, courtesy of a marketing subscription I follow, Sharing With Writers and Readers. There are some awesome tips in here if you do a little more digging in “How to Write a Pitch.”
Exciting New Website: www.pitchyourwork.com
Take advantage of this new opportunity for you to get your work out there, offering it to as many potential buyers as possible in the shortest amount of time.
A “Pitch” is a presentation in which you present your idea (Book, Screenplay or TV Series) as concisely as possible. A “Pitch” is a vital tool to help individuals sell their works. If you don’t know how to write a good one, go to your copy of The Frugal Book Promoter (www.budurl.com/FrugalBkPromo) and look up “pitch,” “logline,” “query,” and other associated words in the index.
PitchYourWork.com mission is to offer a central location for authors and screenwriters to Pitch Your Work via the Internet to agents, producers, editors and other industry executives to whom you might otherwise not have access and to offer a central location for agents, producers, editors, and other industry executives to quickly review the works of new authors and screenwriters or the work of seasoned authors and screenwriters who are seeking change.

for Unpublished novelists, or short story writers with no more than three published works.
No entry fee is good! But, fair warning: it is an L. Ron Hubbard site.
