SSWS Pitch Info

Pitch your project to industry professionals at SSWS 2018!

Superstars will offer a limited number of pitch appointments during the 2018 seminars. Appointments are available to registered attendees only, and pre-registration is required, but there is no charge for these appointments.

Appointment requests will be accepted through January 10, 2018, after which all entrants will be entered into a random drawing for the available appointment slots, and a prioritized waiting list will be created. Appointment notifications will go out by January 15.

To enter your name into the drawing for a pitch appointment, update your registration on RegOnline. You will be asked to rank order your choice for appointment with these industry professionals:

Dave Butler, Acquiring Editor at WordFire Press

Lisa Mangum, Editor at Shadow Mountain Publishing

David Pomerico, Editorial Director of Harper Voyager US

Paul Stevens, Agent with Donald Maass Literary Agency

To help you prepare for your pitch (whether you pitch at SSWS or elsewhere), during SSWS 2018 we will be offering a workshop on “The Art of the Pitch” by Jonathan Maberry, as well as multiple opportunities to practice your pitch with experienced pitchers. There is no pre-registration or sign-up for pitch practice or The Art of the Pitch.
