Most people think of baseball when they hear the word “pitch.” Writers spend hours creating and practicing what they hope is a perfect pitch for their manuscript, book proposal, or screenplay. Pitches come in different lengths, and the methods vary. (See links below.)
When you’ve finished pitching, don’t toss that pitch away. Reduce, reuse, and recycle it. A great pitch can be fashioned into part of a back cover blurb, query, and/or synopsis.
What’s your favorite way to create the perfect pitch?
