At the Marco Island Writers July 13th meeting, Betsy Perdichizzi presented her rendition of “Dr. Mary Olds” to a small but very appreciative audience. The wind and rain depressed attendance that evening. Thanks, Betsy, and thanks to all the stalwart attendees for braving the weather.
The next meeting, on August 10th at 6 PM, will focus on loglines and pitches. Joanne Tailele, current group secretary and former president, will present information on why these are important and how to do them well. Loglines are one-sentence summaries of a written work that convey its essence. Pitches are written or verbal attempts to get an agent or publisher to read your work. Even if you are not ready to send anything to a publisher, loglines and pitches can help you organize your own goals for your writing.
