So, you're going to write a screenplay. This is awesome. And if you're a little nervous about it, that's awesome too, because it means you're not alone. After all, screenwriting isn't something that we learn in grammar school or do at dinner parties.

Since pitching is such an important part of being a working screenwriting, I’m going to devote the next several posts to the art of the pitch. I’ll cover crafting the actual pitch, pointers on style and technique, and information on pitching in the business. (If you want to read what I’ve written about pitching previously, you can see all the posts here .) Before I start, though, I want to do a post about loglines because a good logline is an important part of a good pitch (more on that next post).
