The pages are linked from each of the agent or editor bios in the list of agents and editors:
Agents: Agents confirmed for Pitchfest
Editor:Editors and publishers confirmed for Pitchfest

And both are linked via a main pitch page with information about the rules etc.
You can access them. from the link in the banner or from the menu item on the left or under the hamburger at the top left of the page!
Happy Pitching!

Do the agents have to wait until the end to respond? And will we get a response by email?

The agents can respond in the pitches, some do and some do not. In about a week after the end, we publish a list of requests both on the site and in our newsletter. So you will definitely know by then!

Hi all, this may be a silly question, but I don't see where they are posting comments with the pitches. I see the ability to comment, but not to read the comments. Am I missing it? Good luck to everyone!

Hi
So not all the agents/editors post comments on the pitches, when they do it will appear as a thread to a post just like this one. YOu should see them directly under the pitch they are commenting on.

No not directly, but if you tell me what pitch it is, who you pitched to, I can delete it.

1) want to confirm -- we cannot pitch to the two agents from the same agency right?
2) If so, then can you please delete my pitch to: Jennifer Herrington, Agent at Harvey Klinger Literary Agency
Pitch title: The Grim and the Reverie

Please let me know if you need other info. Thank you!

Hi, If more than one agent/editor likes a pitch and each wants to read more, do we have to choose between them?

Hi, @colehleen!

You may submit to different agents or editors as long as they aren't within the same agency or publishing house.

I hope that helps! :)
