**This course is for screenwriters and for authors with published books**

What You’ll Get From This Course:

  • You’ll learn how to read the market
  • You’ll learn how to write a great logline and a solid pitch
  • You’ll learn the best ways to pitch your project


"Designated Pitcher is wonderful! Tawny helped me navigate an industry I'm not familiar with, and got my project in front of the right eyes and contacts--something I didn't have the knowledge or time to do effectively. I will be using her services again for my next project." - NYT Bestselling author Colleen Gleason

"Tawny's exuberance and energy make her the perfect pitch-master for my projects. She not only found interested producers almost immediately, she followed up with me and kept me in the loop every step of the way. A godsend for any writer too busy or unable to pitch their TV/film projects themselves." - New York Times Bestselling author CJ Lyons
