Adelaide Pitch Conference
The New York Pitch Conference – the most prestigious pitching opportunity for writers in the US – provides writers the opportunity to polish and pitch their work directly to publishers from major houses during a weekend intensive.
Tim Tomlinson, New York Pitch Conference Founder and Director, has worked closely with SA Writers Centre staff to bring this magical blend of manuscript development and pitching opportunity to Australian writers. The New York Pitch Conference has seen many hundreds of successful publishing stories, and we are delighted that Tim will be joining us as a lead mentor for this first Australian conference.
The three day Adelaide Pitch Conference will give writers intense manuscript workout and an exclusive opportunity to get their work in front of acquiring publishers and editors from major publishing houses. In small groups led by industry mentors you will develop your manuscript, refine its marketability and hone your pitch. You’ll work together to make your pitch as tight, interesting, unique and energetic as possible, then over the course of the weekend each participant will have the chance to pitch to a total of three different publishers, all with acquisition in mind.
So put the finishing touches to your manuscript, get your pitch together, and get in quick as places will sell fast.
The list of publishers attending will be confirmed once the mix of participants is finalised.
Please note: pitches will only be accepted for adult fiction and narrative non fiction manuscripts at this conference. If you are unsure whether your manuscript is eligible, please contact SA Writers Centre before applying.
