Description

UPDATE: THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT BUT YOU MAY JOIN THE WAITLIST FROM THE TICKET PAGE.

Considering pitching your book to an agent at the Flatiron Writers Room's upcoming agent event or elsewhere? How about to a bookseller? Or even your neighbor? Writing an effective pitch can make the difference between a publishing contract and a yawn. Learn how to hook people in with a concise and compelling book description. Using their combined backgrounds in the industry and craft tools you already know, instructors Caroline Green Christopoulos and Lauren Harr of Gold Leaf Literary will show you the best way to quickly engage your audience, and leave them wanting more.

Choose your ticket for ONE SESSION ONLY of this class, either Monday, September 9 OR Monday, September 23, 2019, 6:30-8:30. The sessions are identical.

Cost: $45 General Admission, $40 for current FWR Co-Working members. Partial need-based scholarships are available for this workshop.

To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting.

CAROLINE CHRISTOPOULOS works at Malaprop’s Bookstore/Cafe, where she has been a bookseller for fifteen years and buyer for eleven. She is on the steering committee of the Asheville Grown Business Alliance and the programming committee for the Carolina Mountains Literary Festival. In addition to bringing authors and their works the attention they deserve, her focus includes strengthening community and promoting local business. She and her husband live in Asheville and are proud foster parents.

LAUREN HARR has worked in the book world for fifteen years primarily as a bookseller in Asheville and Albuquerque, but also as an assistant at literary nonprofits in Santa Fe, as an intern at Graywolf Press, and as a marketing assistant and publicist at Coffee House Press. She spent eight years at Malaprop’s Bookstore/Cafe where her passions were connecting readers and books and assisting the events program. She lives in Asheville with her husband and daughter.
