It's no secret that pitching, networking and marketing yourself and your work generally makes writers nervous. We hear you! We spend all this time with ourselves and our material and it's hard to figure out how to communicate what's in our head to reps or execs.
But pitching, networking, and marketing are skills we have to develop in order to build a successful career in this industry. The good news is that we don't have to learn those skills the hard way.
Enter Dave Devries with this special four-week lecture series designed to give us the tools we need to confidently put our work out there!
This Four-Week Lecture Series Will Cover:
- General Meetings
- Pitching 101
- The Follow-Up (aka Maintaining the Relationship)
- Working with Execs
