Pitch Sessions
Agent/editor pitch sessions will be 10 minutes long and will be scheduled before and after lunch. Pitch sessions will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be contacted if you have a spot on the schedule. We will work from a waiting list in case some attendees drop out—so be ready to pitch!
