Blogger: Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent - Post a Comment

Rachelle Gardner is planning to post a Guest Post on Thursdays until the end of the year 2009.

She invited people to pitch to her on the comments section linked below.

As an exercise in pitching, look at the list of pitches, go right down the list looking as if looking for one you'd want on your blog.

I found only ONE definite in the list, and I'm interested to find out if Rachelle Gardner agrees with me about that choice. And which other pitches she'll accept.

Notice by the end of the list of pitches how "jaded" your eyes get, how you skip blocks of type, how no subject however intrinsically interesting grabs your attention. You can't learn this without doing it - so go do it. Just read the list of pitches, if you don't have time, but if you do then read Rachelle Gardner's invitation post for what she wants and why, and how to present it.

It's a lesson in what you're up against in any market, not just for selling words, but selling any product.
