How it works

The Pitch event will be held once a year, over two days. Please make sure you are pitching your book on the appropriate day; participating agents will only tune in on a specific day, to see the pitches in the categories they represent/acquire. If agents see a pitch they like, authors will send in queries and go through the normal querying process.
