Are You a Writer Ready to Pitch Your Manuscript?

Then your friends at The BookFest® have an opportunity you don't want to miss...

If you're ready to pitch your fiction or non-fiction manuscript to agents and publishing decision-makers, then enter the Pitching Room at The BookFest Adventure. It is a database that matches authors with agents, like a dating app, but for manuscripts. Upload your pitch materials so agents and publishing decision-makers can check them out.
Plus, there are two special add-ons. You can add that you'd like to be considered for Brave New Writer and/or Critiki-Bar. These live interactive panels happen on Saturday, Oct. 23rd during The BookFest Fall 2021.

As members of The BookFest Community, you are being offered this before we open it to the public. Take advantage of special introductory pricing and get your manuscript out there.

Take the Stage at The BookFest with Brave New Writer
The BookFest® introduces Brave New Writer. This interactive agent panel will feature select authors with outstanding pitches to take the virtual stage and pitch before a panel of agents.

It's like Shark Tank, but for writers.

To be considered, add on Brave New Writer when you submit your pitch in the Pitching Room.
Brave New Writer is brought to you in part with our friends at Roadmap Authors. They will present a special pitching virtual training session for selected Brave New Writers prior to the live event.
Take a Seat at the Critiki-Bar at The BookFest Adventure
David L. Robbins, New York Times bestselling author, creative writing professor, founder of James River Writers and The Mighty Pen Project, and co-founder of the Podium Foundation.
Katharine Sands, Literary agent representing fiction, non-fiction and memoir. Agent provocateur of Making the Perfect Pitch: How to Catch a Literary Agent’s Eye, a collection of pitching wisdom from leading literary agents.
Would you like your first page critiqued? Then add on to be considered for Critiki-Bar with David L. Robbins and Katharine Sands.

Critiki-Bar features a two-sided assessment from both the business and the craft side of writing — served with wit, insight, experience, and punch.

Have a seat while this highly regarded literary agent and a New York Times bestselling author discuss — and debate — aspects of creating a skillfully told story and navigating the professional side of publishing by dissecting that oh-so-important first page.

Do you want your first page to be considered for Critiki-Bar? Then add on Critiki-Bar when you submit your pitch in the pitching room.
Not a writer, but you want to check out the action? Would you like to see the pitches? Find them in The BookFest Pitching Room. And join us Oct. 23rd for Brave New Writer and Critiki-Bar at The BookFest Adventure.
Plus there are many other panels and conversations happening at The BookFest's 4th biannual virtual event. Mark your calendars for October 23rd and 24th, 2021.

Free to attend, the programming will engage with those who love to read on Saturday the 23rd, and then lean over to those who love to write on Sunday the 24th.
