Talk notes Eroticon 2017: Pitching 101 with Girl on the Net

A couple of people have asked me for my talk slides, so here they are along with a few notes/a summary of the talk. Pitching is often incredibly hard. Hard like homework, and not always fun.

Eroticon 2017 Anthology – Call for submissions

Ever since we took over organising the conference, I’ve been really keen to see if alongside the physical event, we can put something together for those who aren’t able to attend.
