New York Writers Workshop hosts three-day Pitch Conferences in New York City for writers of non-fiction and fiction. Each type of conference is offered twice a year, in the spring and fall. The Fiction Conference includes sections for those writing for adults as well as for children and young adults.
Participants polish their pitches with the help of conference leaders who are members of the New York Writers Workshop faculty, then present them to three different editors from major publishing houses. Editors provide feedback and may request proposals and manuscripts after the conference.
Each conference also includes a panel discussion of literary agents.
See Conference Leadership for a list of some of the agents, editors and publishing houses we work with.
