Somerset Storyfest presents HOTA Reads - The Art of Pitching


Join literary agent Alex Adsett for this behind-the-scenes session on publishing pitching dos and don’ts. Learn about different strategies for written pitches and verbal pitches, how to best position yourself and your work to make a good impression, and what NOT to do!

The evening will include a chance for some lucky volunteers (with names pulled out of a hat) to practice their pitch to the room with a live critique from Alex. Please note, pitching is a valuable skill for any author, and this evening will not be an actual pitch to Alex Adsett Literary, but a chance to hone your skills and learn key publishing insider information.

Studio 1 – HOTA Central, 5pm arrivals for a 5.30pm start.
