Conference Confab (July/August)

Pamela KimLearn, Connect and Pitch with Industry Experts

NYC Pitch and Shop Conference
September 13-16, 2007

Here’s a novel idea: bring together faculty, connections and expertise to create an exclusive forum for writers with completed novel manuscripts, narrative non-fiction and works-in-progress. That’s just what the New York Writers Workshop and Algonkian Writer Conferences have done. The conference is limited to 60 writers, so you have ample time to workshop your novel with professional fiction editors and pitch top acquisition editors from major publishers — Scribners, Penguin, Random House, Holt, St. Martins.

The conference offers three intensive “pitch workshops” designed to teach the art of the pitch plus opportunities to get a reality check on your novel and learn more about publishing. Submission of bio, goals, synopsis and write sample is required.

The same folks also host the Seven Mountains Writers Conference on October 19-24, 2007.
