Monday's Meeting

Next meeting - Monday, July 24, 2006

6:15-7:00 Chat Time
7:00-8:00 Discussion - Pitching Your Project
8:00-9:00 Critiques

Ringwood Baptist Church
30 Carletondale Road
Ringwood, NJ 07456

Discussion Time - Pitching Your Project
What is an "elevator pitch"?
What will get a publisher's positive reaction?
What will get a publisher's negative reaction?
How do you find a F-R-E-S-H angle?

On July 24 we'll begin this discussion and we will continue it on August 14, 2006.

BRING: One project idea that you would like to have published. As a group, we'll fine tune that idea until it POPS! This should not be an article or book chapter (something you've already written). It should be only an IDEA for an article (or book) that you would like to write.

ALSO: Be prepared to briefly tell the group what you've been working on. I will share the progress of my latest research trip to Michigan for my book If a Tux Could Talk: The Men Who Help Plan Their Weddings, and the Women Who Love Them For it.

Get ready - this is going to be a H-O-T summer for getting published!
