Get Down to Business!

  • JWI 1129 20th Street NW, Suite 801 Washington, DC 20036 (map)

Join JWI's YWLN D.C. for an interactive workshop, where you’ll have the chance to practice pitching an idea to a renowned literary agent. Gail Ross, president of the Ross Yoon Literary Agency, will give you feedback on how to communicate the value of your idea – anything from a new project at work to a creative venture to an entirely new business.

No matter what your vision is, you need to learn how to make the best pitch to the people around you. Whether your job is writing grants, creating marketing campaigns, managing a team or developing partnerships, this is an important skill to master. Come ready to brainstorm in small groups, make a pitch to our supportive group and learn feedback for best practices that will help you thrive in all stages of your career.
