Here writers may pitch their manuscript in the form of submitting their pitch materials. Agents and publishing decision-makers may browse and look for the next great manuscript for a potential book deal. And everyone can take a look at the exciting pitches submitted below by creative writers ready to unleash their opus to the masses.
Are you ready to pitch your manuscript? Would you like it to be seen by literary agents, acquisitions editors and publishing decision-makers? Submit your fiction or non-fiction manuscript to appear here in the BookFest Adventure Pitching Room.
Step Two: Check your email inbox for a curated list of resources, articles, videos and information to both inspire you and help with your pitch materials.
Step Three: Submit your pitch materials. You will be prompted to pay via our secure payment method after you submit your pitch.
Step Four: Add on extras if you would like to be considered for Brave New Writer or Critiki-Bar. These two live panels happen during The BookFest. You could be selected for either, or maybe even both. Once you complete your order, you will get a confirmation email.
Step Five: Share your BookFest Pitch with your network, invite agents and publishing decision-makers to see it during online pitching events, and watch your inbox for agents who might be interested in representing your manuscript.
Remember, BookFesters — those who are part of The BookFest Community — can see your public pitch information. They can vote on pitches they like best and maybe even influence the agents.
