A Better Elevator Pitch: Crafting Your Quick Lunch Line Pitch



The classic idea of an elevator pitch isn't realistic. Do strangers ask you questions in elevators? No. But there is another kind of situation we find ourselves in all the time-- standing in line at a conference, networking meeting, or other event. When someone asks "What are you working on?" you have an opportunity. Are you ready? Do you know what to say? In this workshop, Scott will take a deep dive into what the Lunch Line Pitch is, talk through examples from clients, and lead a mini-workshop to help all in attendance build a first draft of their own Lunch Line Pitch.



You will learn how to:

- Quick pitch your current next book in less than 5 seconds

- Pitch yourself in just a sentence or two (No more wondering what to say!)

- Get agents, readers, friends, and family actually interested in what you’re working on
