New York Pitch Conference – 1 week!

Hello guys,

I am excited it is only one week to go until I go to New York. I am travelling to the New York Pitch Conference, and I am very grateful to have received funding for part of this trip from the Sunshine Coast Council and Arts Queensland.

Thanks to the Queensland Government Arts Queensland and the Sunshine Coast Council for believing in my novel and supporting me to attend the NYPC to pitch my novel to editors from Penguin, Harper Collins, Random House, St Martins Press and more. We have already been given the assignments to prepare for the conference. I now have written a pitch for the conference based on these assignments.

Once we arrive at the conference we workshop this pitch the first day and then pitch to our first editor, and then the following three days to three different editors. I have finished my novel now and I have been working on it tirelessly for nearly three years. Hopefully, I can attract a publisher, but no matter what it will be an amazing experience to hang out in New York and to learn the skills for pitching, as well as pitching to Editors from US publishers. I know I will learn a lot from this experience. This knowledge I will be able to share with my writers group and other writing enthusiasts back at home.

Thank you so much to the Sunshine Coast Council’s RADF and Arts Queensland funding that supports artists to attend conferences or events that will further their careers. I know that I will be able to also share this knowledge with others when I return.

Thanks for reading! I will keep you updated with what is happening at the conference.
