The Central Valley Writers’ Workshop will host a class on how to pitch your work to editors and agents 11:30 a.m. April 21 at the Chowchilla library, corner of South Third Street and Kings Avenue.

Glenna Jarvis, president of CVWW and author of the newly-released mystery-thriller, “Sandmann,” will teach the class.

“Most writers, especially those attending conferences for the first time, don’t know what to expect when they go into that one-on-one session with a professional in the publishing industry,” Jarvis said. “This class will not only get them and the documents they will need prepared, we will conduct mock pitching sessions so they will be confident and more comfortable before they go into their one-on-one.”

Jarvis has taught numerous classes on the craft of writing and pitching, and has written the Workshop’s manual on manuscript preparation. She is founder of CVWW, and holds membership with the national Sisters in Crime and The Writerie. She is a former member of the Golden Triangle Writers’ Guild, DFW Writers’ Workshop, and the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation. She has won numerous awards for her writing, and enjoys sharing her knowledge with fellow writers to help them reach their goals of publication...
