Projecting a Professional Persona When Pitching and Presenting
By Margie Lawson
Offered on-line, June 14 – June 27
When you think about pitching or presenting, does your anxiety spike? Do you have a gut-grabbing, heart-ratcheting, vision-clouding visceral reaction? If so, join me for two weeks starting June 14th.
Writers pitch to agents, pitch to editors, introduce guest speakers. They participate on panels, present workshops, give book signings. They get interviewed for podcasts, radio, and television. Some writers get interviewed by Matt Lauer and Oprah!
