The Race Is On
The New York Pitch Conference builds writers’ careers. I’m a writer. We’re a match made in heaven. But to attend, I need one of the sixty-five coveted acceptance letters sent out each year. So I apply. The odds are not in my favor.
I beat the odds.
Hello and thank you for your application. It is clear you are a serious writer and one capable of writing a manuscript that editors and agents will want to see. Following a review, we have decided to accept you into the September 2013 New York Pitch Conference.
If a publishing house wishes to publish your novel, they will ask that you be represented by an agent; therefore, if necessary, we will assist you in finding suitable representation.
… We look forward to working with you, as well as admire and respect what you are doing.
Director, New York Pitch Conference
If you’ve spent any amount of time here at my blog, you know how long I’ve been trying to get to this point. But I’ve hit a bump in the road. That’s where Indiegogo comes in. For the rest of the story, go here.
Wish me luck on the race.
