Wind up your own pitch with Pitching Tips from Classic Writers

Pamela Jaye Smith is a frequent panelist and consultant at the “Sell Your Story to Hollywood” weekends sponsored by the Hollywood Film Festival.

The panels, hosted by Donie Nelson of Career Strategies for Writers, listen to five-minute pitches and then offer critiques and suggestions to improve the pitches prior to the writers meeting with producers and development execs for their actual pitch. Glowing results are often reported.

At the Creative Screenwriting EXPO 3 Pamela Jaye was one of the story consultants at the Pitch Prep Salon, offering thirty minutes of one-on-one distillation of scripts and stories into a vivid and enticing three-sentence pitch. Many people popped back into the Salon with success stories.
