New York Writers Workshop 2015 Pitch Conferences

Non-Fiction Pitch—Apr 10 - 12, 2015 • Perfect Pitch Fiction—Mar 13 - 15, 2015 • New York, NY

New York Writers Workshop hosts three-day Pitch Conferences for writers of fiction and non-fiction and YA. At these unique conferences, participants meet with and pitch their manuscripts to three different editors from major New York publishing houses (including Viking, Penguin, Random House, Scribners, Simon and Schuster, and others).

Before the conference begins, participants boil the essence of their manuscript down to a synopsis of flap copy length (roughly three minutes). The copy should include the book's premise and hook.

Day One
Pitch participants workshop their flap copy with a workshop leader from New York Writers Workshop. Each participant reads his/her synopsis. The NYWW instructor provides guidance in revision for clarity, concision, and impact. The instructor also discusses, as appropriate, the realities of the publishing market. The rest of the group participates, as appropriate, and learns from each example.

Day Two
Begins with morning Agents Panel-Interview, Q&A, Schmooze. Afternoon, participants pitch to two editors. The first pitch is public, in the presence of group, and is followed by a short Q&A with the editor. The second pitch is private, one-on-one with an editor, with an NYWW instructor present.

Day Three
Each participant makes one private pitch to an editor, again with an NYWW instructor present. The day wraps with a group conference with an NYWW instructor.
