Yep, it’s back again! Your next best chance to land that perfect agent or (and) sell your book to the publisher of your dreams! We open up the SavvyAuthor’s site for three fun-filled and exciting days where you post your pitch on our blog to a bevy of agents and editors.

How this whole Pitchfest thing works…
  • After 9AM EST the day of the Pitchfest, post your three-line pitch as a comment the agent and editor pages. These pages will be linked from the Autumn Pitch Page.
  • Nope, no registration is required (but if you do, we'll send you reminders).
  • Nope, you do not have to be a SavvyAuthors member. (But it is free…)
  • Lastly, please review the Pitch Rules before pitching.

Even though my pitch wasn't chosen this time, pitchfest provided a wonderful opportunity for writers to pitch to a wide variety of people all at once. I especially liked the fact that you had a number of new industry people that we haven't seen before. Keep up the great work.
I'm appreciative for SavyAuthor for offering this valuable opportunity. Well organized and offered many agents and publishers to pitch to. SavyAuthor is my go to for writing classes, ideas, and overall support. Thank you and keep up the great work!
This was a great opportunity to pitch agents/editors. Very well organized with clear communication.
I love the pitch fests -- They are organized, there are multiple reminders, and I enjoy the chance to pitch in a much smaller event where I can pick and chose agents as well as actually have a better chance at an agent liking my pitch/work.
It's wonderful that there were a few new agents this time. I also appreciate getting an email with all the requests.
I still find the length of the pitch unclear. If you can write up to 250 words why does it matter how many sentences it is? I always try to keep it down but see other people writing a lot.
It's still confusing.
I stumbled across this event on the RWA (Australia) Facebook page and thought - why not. As a newbie, I found this event a lot of fun with many great agents and editors to choose from. The process was straightforward and a good submission experience, especially summarising your story in a couple of sentences. Thank you SavvyAuthors for organising the event and I certainly shall be back to pitch the current WIP!
I really enjoyed the idea and premise behind it. Thank you for the opportunity. I can't help but feel a little disappointed, though, as I was one of the few people that didn't get even a hint of interest. I recognize its all subjective. It would be great if there was a "second chance" follow up where you could get SOME feedback as to why the pitch didn't resonate.
I loved this event! It was so fun pitching my work! I even got a request for a manuscript submission!!!
The only suggestion I have is to be able to enable emails when someone comments on your pitch. It seemed like I either got emailed every time someone posted or not at all. I would have liked to have the option to be notified of comments on my pitches specifically.
Thank you so much for organizing this event! It was wonderful!
This is a wonderful way to practice pitching and to connect with agents and editors. This is the second Pitchfest I've participated in, and I've enjoyed both greatly. My only qualm is that the pitch-perfecting courses fill up really quickly, and have such limited seating.
The Autumn Pitchfest was well organized and a welcome opportunity to get my pitch out to agents. I appreciate that SavvyAuthors made this event a reality. #BrightSpot2020!
