In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to craft a perfect pitch, as well as the purpose of a pitch. Whether you’re pitching a nonfiction book, a children’s picture book, or a novel, the mechanics of the pitch are the same. Michelle will also share how to prepare your “personalized pitch” for each editor you’ll meet with at the conference, and she’ll share her secret for making the most of those 15-minute appointments with the editor you’ve been stalking.
Pitch Perfect was so helpful and full of wisdom from one of the best. Writers should definitely take this class!!

Pitching is something I dread. I'm not good at selling anything, much less, my personal work. However, the information I learned in Michelle's Pitch Perfect course was practical and applicable.I used some of her tips in recent pitch sessions and felt at ease and prepared. If you're like me, take this course and learn how to pitch what God has placed on your heart. And be prepared for success!
