RWA2018 conference attendees have the opportunity to sign up for pitch appointments with romance fiction-acquiring editors and agents. Pitch appointments are individual meetings where writers pitch their (completed) romance novels/novellas to editors/agents. Conference attendees may sign up for two editor and two agent appointments each (based on availability).
Authors who sign up for pitch appointments must certify that they are pitching a completed manuscript or have previously published a novel or novella.
Priority for appointments goes first to current Golden Heart and RITA finalists, then to past Golden Heart and RITA finalists from the previous two years' contests, then to PRO and PAN members. All other conference attendees may select appointments, if any remain, afterward. Any open appointments will be available for selection the morning of the event.
Sign-up for editor/agent appointments is a tiered process.
