New York Writers Workshop Pitch Conference

NYWW Pitch Conference

New York Writers Workshop hosts three-day pitch conferences in New York City.  The conferences, offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall, welcome writers of fiction, nonfiction, and YA with book-length manuscripts (or projects). 

With the guidance of New York Writers Workshop faculty, participants polish their pitches on Day One, then present them to three different editors from major publishing houses. Editors provide feedback and may request proposals and manuscripts after the conference.

Conferences feature a panel discussion of literary agents on the morning of the second day.

See Conference Leadership for a list of details on some of the agents, editors and publishing houses we work with.
