Ever wondered whether that idea you have for a novel, or a poetry or short story
collection could fly?
Would you like the chance to pitch to a team of publishing industry professionals?
You’ve seen Dragons’ Den, so now Headingley Litfest invites you to pitch your ideas in front of an audience and a panel of professional writers and publishers.
Not only is this a great chance to see whether your idea is sound, it also gives you a chance to see what the competition is like out there.
What makes a great idea stand out from the pile?
The winning pitcher(s) will be invited to submit a synopsis and sample of their work for consideration by either Valley Press based in Scarborough, or Hebden Bridge based Bluemoose Books.
Regardless of whether a publishing contract is offered, feedback will be provided on the submission package. The panel of judges will be made up of:
• Kevin Duffy - Bluemoose Books
• Jamie McGarry - Valley Press
• Alison Taft - Novelist and Editor for Cornerstones Literary Consultancy
Places to pitch are limited.
