Description of talk:

Screenwriters and prose writers will love this interactive and fun way to learn the tricks of the successful pitch from an experienced and respected Hollywood insider. Gain invaluable feedback on pitches, useful for selling your book or screenplay, from award-winning author, screenwriter/producer Catherine Ann Jones.

Focus will be on story structure, rewriting your proposal and story, character development, point of view, & how to focus your pitch.

It’s all in the story, and how to focus the story. Film or book, fiction or non-fiction, requires an emotional response from reader and audience. Learn how to structure your story or proposal in order to successfully realize your project.
