From time to time we will have contests on the podcast which will require an elevator pitch to be developed from one of our writing prompts. The following format will help you create an elevator pitch that you can use for the story.
* Who is the protagonist? * What is his/her goal? * What person or force opposes him/her? * What is at stake?
Example: A brilliant, young FBI agent's dream of a daring career vanish when he is assigned as a supply clerk in a dead-end post. Everything changes when the lead investigators in the office eat themselves to death and he is the only person with a clue as to what they were investigating when it happened.
