How To Hack The Pitching Process

Got A Pitching S.O.S?

So you’ve found a script call, writing contest or pitching opportunity for your spec screenplay or unpublished novel. Great news!

But wait … you need a logline (aka ‘short pitch’). ACK.

You probably know a great cover letter, query email, online pitchfest or Zoom meeting needs a logline if you want to sell your writing to agents, publishers, producers or other industry pros.

Working with writers, I’ve noted most really struggle with loglines (aka ‘short pitches’ if you are a novelist). Yet being able to pitch our stories helps us SELL our stories to literary agents, publishers, producers, filmmakers and audiences or readers in …

  • Cover letters
  • Query Emails 
  • Pitchfests (both online & in real life)
  • Meetings and networking events (‘What are you working on?)
  • Writing contests, schemes and initiatives 
  • Funding bids with investors 
  • Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and Unbound campaigns
  • Online listings – Amazon, Netflix, Prime etc

In other words, a great logline can make ALL THE DIFFERENCE in getting our writing in front of the right people! 

But boiling down an entire book or script to just 1-2 sentences can be a nightmare. Where do you start??

Also, how do you know if yours is any good or not?? EEK!
