Pitch Independent — Sophie Masson (NEWC Chairwoman)
As one of the three co-ordinators for the New England Writers’ Centre’s big Pitch Independent program, I am happy to report that it was a brilliant success!
The prep day two weeks ago went really well, with lots of people getting advice and practising their pitches in front of local publishing professionals. We hosted a fantastic lineup of some of Australia’s best small and independent book publishers and literary magazine editors, who participated in a lively and engaging symposium, heard lots of one-on-one pitches from writers in all genres as well as illustrators, and generally gave generously, and warmly, of their time, knowledge and expertise.
