    OK; he is not going to take pictures, but pitches.

    I am an experienced technical writer, but what is meant by pitches? Is it like ideas, proposed story lines, or what?

    • Diane Clough says:

      Charles, a “pitch” is an informal presentation of your story idea to an editor or agent with the intent of having him/her request to read your manuscript. They are brief, usually 5 to 10 minutes, and should cover the main themes/character conflicts in your book. The manuscript should be complete before pitching it to an editor or agent.

      Hope this helps!
