Pitching to Publishers – TIP

When you’re pitching a mini-series to a publisher and you’re breaking down a synopsis of each issue, DON’T try and tell the story… instead, FOCUS on SHOWING the story through the action/scenes of each issue.

Publishers/editors should have a clear understanding of what’s actually taking place in each issue. If they don’t they’re more likely to simply reject rather than ask for clarification. ▪
