ThrillerFest XIV • July 9 – 13, 2019 • Grand Hyatt • New York City


PitchFest is designed to put authors and agents together for the purpose of pitching projects. This will be an unprecedented opportunity for those writers looking to get or change agents. And where better to have this event than in the heart of publishing, New York City?

sandra_transPitchFest is set up like a speed-dating event. You pitch your novel to an agent for a few minutes, get the agent’s reaction, and then move on to a different agent.

Please note: PitchFest is available only in packages with ThrillerFest, Master Class and/or CraftFest. Registering for ThrillerFest alone does not qualify you to attend PitchFest. Registering for Master Class alone does not qualify you to attend PitchFest. Registering for CraftFest alone does not qualify you to attend PitchFest. Please make sure to add PitchFest to your registration.  We’ve added a new event called ConsultFest that allows you to sign up for advice from a top acquiring editor or agent in the industry who can personalize an improvement in your writing or querying journey with more time.  Register today!
