I may have stolen the line for my own nefarious purposes.
But I can feel the winds of change in the air,
The poignant smell of sweat and fear,
mingled with a smidgen of fragile hope.
Yup, it's the dreaded writer's conference. :)
Sure it's delicious fun to go,
just think of all those books!
Being surrounded by other writerly geeks just like you.
But somewhere in the conference lurks the publisher.
And he's waiting for you...
dum, dum dummmmm.
to pitch your book of course! :)
The Word Guild is holding their Write! Canada conference from June 16-18th in Guelph, Canada.
More info here:
This is my first year going.
So I've been frantically planning my elevator pitch for it.
Using resources from Camy Tang on this website:
I have finally come up with a reasonable pitch.
When her village is destroyed Rosalyn, an orphan shepherdess, seeks the truth of Aleph to fight the fallen angel Satariel and his minions. Can she let go of the anger from the past to save her new found friends or will the ancient darkness destroy both the world and her soul?
Rosalyn is a YA fantasy manuscript of 50,000 words.
So what do you think?
