How it Works

What is a Pitch Roundtable?

Groups of fifteen writers will meet (together as a group) on ZOOM with an agent or editor on Sunday, August 4, at one of the two times listed below. Each writer will have five minutes to pitch their book to the agent or editor. We recommend that you keep your pitch to 2-3 minutes to allow for feedback and questions. Come prepared to verbally pitch your book.
