Pitch an Agent!


These one-on-one meetings are an amazing chance to pitch your book face-to-face with an agent, and get personal, individual feedback on your pitch/concept. If the agent likes your pitch, they’ll request to see part/all of your book—sending you straight past the slush pile. It also gives you an intimate chance to meet with an agent and pick their brain with any questions on your mind.

Please note that Agent/Editor Pitches and Synopses (including author synopses) is an ADD ON and as such a separate aspect of the day. Also note that Synopses are available only for those who have signed up for it in advance through our registration page. Pricing and details listed below.

Each agent or editor only has room for five (5) pitch sessions and five (5) synopsis sessions. Register early for this or lose your chance with that agent or editor.

Add $29 — to secure a 5-minute one-on-one meeting with any agent or editor in attendance. Bring your one (1) page query letter and pitch your work to the agent or editor of your choice.

Add $59 — for a 10 minute in-depth, personal critique of your three (3)-page synopsis from the author, agent or editor of your choice. Please note that synopses must be mailed three (3) weeks before the conference to Torie Amarie Dale: torieamariedale@torieamariedale.com to ensure that the author, agent or editor can give it their full attention or you forfeit the fee and lose your critique time.
