Speed Pitch

With this speed-dating-style session, you’ll need to bring your best elevator pitch as you have four minutes to wow an industry professional before the bell rings, and it’s on to the next!

For the Speed Pitch event, editors and agents will be assigned to five rooms, with a mix of editors and agents in each room.  Attendees will sign up for a block of time in one room and will be allowed to spend four minutes with each editor and agent in that room. A list of industry professionals assigned to each room will be made available before Speed Pitch registration is open.

Participating authors will be asked to provide basic information, and after the event, editors and agents will be given access to a directory that will include contact information for each author with whom they met. The basic information includes your name, current author photo (in case an industry professional wants to reach someone whose face they remember but not a name), email address, website, awards (if any), titles and categories of completed, unencumbered works in process, and a very brief descriptions of WIP.
