We’d like to offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us last year. We’ve loved having this event at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury, but after the last few summers we realize it’s simply too hot in August to hold this event in a venue without air conditioning. We are very excited to be moving to Featherstone Center for the Arts this year. Along with air conditioning, Featherstone has more room for breakout sessions and workshops and plenty of parking. We may be moving, but much about Islanders Write will remain the same.

Interested in pitching you book project to the pitch panel?
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 12. 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 before August 3, 2019, to
