Pitch Panel Guidelines: Each project pitched for this session will be preselected by the organizers of “Islanders Write.” We will only be selecting five pitches, in order to give our panelists time to comment on each pitch and to take audience questions at the end. Pitches must be three minutes or shorter. They can be fiction or nonfiction, for the adult or children’s market. The panelists will have no advance knowledge of your project, and will be hearing about your work and about you for the first time on August 14. Please note that the editor and agent on this panel have generously agreed to offer their advice in order to help writers better understand the process of getting editors and agents interested in their books. Please be aware that they are not here seeking projects for themselves. If you are interested in pitching to our pitch panel, please email a paragraph about your book project and a short bio to kate@mvtimes.com.
