My first pitchfest was a great experience and the Savvy Authors layout was easy to use. It was helpful to read other people's pitches and select which editors and agents you wanted to receive notifications.
I really like the Savvy Authors pitch events. This was my second. It's easy to participate, and so valuable to be able to see the pitches others make. I've already gotten good advice for improving one of my pitches from this Pitchfest.
I really liked getting the e-mails that had each individual name (Agent/Agency and Editor/Publishers)
It made it so very quick and easy to organize and choose the right place for what they are asking for and pitch it.
Thanks so much.
Sweetheart PitchFest is a fabulous opportunity to get your work in front of agents and editors who may be closed to queries in general. Thanks to the 2020 PitchFest, I received my first offer of publication! Highly recommend this event to authors looking for a home for their books!
I am THRILLED with Savvy Authors. This is my second time pitching in a fest and I SCORED! By allowing everyone's pitches to be open as well as feedback is a HUGE education in what works and what doesn't. Last year was a bust, but this year....thank you!
Thanks for the opportunity. My problem with it was knowing how we were supposed to know if the person we queried was interested. One year, an agent replied to the pitches on the blog., so I was expecting that. This year, at least with the agent I queried, that didn't happen.
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!
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!
