I'm finishing up a massive revision to my MS and thinking about sending out another batch of queries in the next month or so. But I'm also planning to attend a conference in two months where there will be a big pitch slam event with some of the agents I was hoping to query. So I'm wondering, is pitching in person really better than a regular old written query? Should I hold off until the conference? I'm kind of terrified that I'll make a giant mess of a live pitch, but if the odds are better that way, then I will suck it up and work on my presentation skills.
