Comic Pitch Review
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch ahead of time' and get some free coaching from a pro. So, what's a pitch? A pitch is the way you present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade and interest your listener in what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with fantastic ideas for new comics, but many of those same creators struggle to talk clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. That's your pitch. And if you want to bring your project to life, you must be able to give a good one. Fortunately, this is a skill you can learn and improve with practice' and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, a professional speechwriter, speaker coach, and host of the Comic Creator Connection. This is not a panel. Instead, these are 3- to 5-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as can be accommodated in the scheduled time. Everyone is welcome, but please note that showing up is not a guarantee that you'll get a review session. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Comic Creator Connection (Friday)
San Diego Comic-Con is proud to once again host the Comic Creator Connection, a fast-paced networking event that puts writers and artists together to help them meet potential new creative partners. Here's how it works: In two 2-hour sessions (this one and another on Sunday at noon), writers and artists (pencillers, inkers, colorists, etc.) will sit down across from each other at a table. Then, in 5-minute sessions, they will talk one-on-one with each other about their ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, participants will get up and move on to the next person. If they are interested in furthering the conversation, they can exchange contact information. If not, they can politely move on. Think of it as speed-dating, but for writers and artists!

Comic Pitch Review (Sunday)
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch before the event and get some invaluable help from a professional writer and speaker coach. So what is a pitch? A pitch is simply a way to present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade your listener into supporting what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with great ideas for new comics, but they often struggle to speak clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. Giving a good pitch is a vital skill in bringing your project to life. Fortunately, it's also a skill you can learn and improve with practice-and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, a professional speechwriter, speaker coach, and host of the Comic Creator Connection. This is not a panel. Instead, these are three- to five-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as is possible to accommodate in the scheduled time. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis, and observers are welcome.
