Registration: PitchFest Sessions—$50 Each

We’re offering the chance to have virtual Pitching Sessions with top agents and editors who are seeking thriller clients. These sessions will be held via Zoom (free download) in a private Zoom room with one attendee (you) and one agent/editor. A tech host will be there to make sure everything goes smoothly. We want to create an intimate experience, the best we can do for a face-to-face meeting under the circumstances. The benefits of this style of pitching? No standing in line as with the in-person event! Writers with a finished manuscript will pitch their work for 5-7 minutes to an agent or editor. If the editor or agent is interested in your pitch, he/she will request pages of your work.

There are a limited number of experts and we are in the process of lining them up now. You will be able to select your agent and time of appointment and instructions for that process will be sent to everyone who has registered after the agent schedule is full. This will likely happen in early May. You can purchase up to seven pitching appointments. The list of available agents will help you select your appointments.
