At the heart of the Book Market lie the stories waiting to be published.
PITCHING AND ASK A PRO
Both aspiring and established authors can participate.
The Book Market provides an opportunity to present your own novel to editors and agents (Pitching), and to receive personalised one-to-one consultation from publishing experts contributing to the 13th edition of the Women’s Fiction Festival (Ask a Pro).
HOW TO ENROL AND PARTECIPATE
Subscribers to the International Writers’ Conference may attend the Book Market
Important tips on preparation
Before booking an appointment, read the guidelines for each participating agent and editor to understand what they are looking for and what they typically publish
Only select editors and agents where there is a potential match, those that are looking for stories and genres within which your own novel may fit.
If your work is unpublished, we advise you do not to submit to foreign editors and agents.
10 minute slots are scheduled for pitching appointments with editors and agents.
Present a brief synopsis of your novel. Bring a couple of chapters together with your business cards.
Daily subscriptions to the Book Market or individual substitutions are not permitted.
The Book Market provides a unique opportunity for networking and exchange: WFF builds bridges, it is not responsible for what may follow a pitch (rejections, delayed or no response).
