Pitch Sessions

Agent Appointments

Saturday, June 18

Greetings!  Thank you for registering for BTP Writers Con 2022. We are excited to see all of you at the conference. Please read the information below and contact us with any questions you may have.

We are currently scheduling pitch appointments with industry experts. If you choose to pitch to an agent, you will be assigned a specific appointment time. Be aware these are very short ~ 7 minutes / appointment. We will adhere to the schedule in order to maximize attendees’ opportunity to participate.

Generally, if you are pitching fiction, you must have a completed, polished manuscript, a short 2-3 sentence pitch, and a book description prepared. But do not bring a full printed manuscript with you. The agent will request what they want you to send by email following the conference. We suggest you research the literary agency and agents prior to pitching, familiarize yourselves with their submission requirements, and be aware of the other authors they represent. That information can be found on their website.

**Be advised, agents will not offer you representation for work already self-published. They cannot sell such work to a publisher.   

You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment request and the scheduled time. Please retain that information.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the conference in June!
