Somerset Storyfest presents HOTA Reads – The Art of Pitching

Join literary agent Alex Adsett for this behind the scenes session on publishing pitching dos and don’ts. Learn about different strategies for written pitches and verbal pitches, how to best position yourself and your work to make a good impression, and what NOT to do!

The evening will include a chance for some lucky volunteers (with names pulled out of a hat) to practice their pitch to the room with a live critique from Alex.

Please note, pitching is a valuable skill for any author, and this evening will not be an actual pitch to Alex Adsett Literary, but a chance to hone your skills and learn key publishing insider information.
