Literary Agent Pitch Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT

Literary agent Julie Stevenson, of Lippincott Massie McQuilkin in New York, has kindly offered her time as a fundraiser for the 2016 Montana Book Festival. 

She is eager to meet people for 10-minute, one-on-one sessions. The idea here is for participants to receive feedback and ask questions about pitches, pitch letters and the industry. Book-deals and agent-signings rarely happen in this type of environment - rather, Julie wants to offer guidance to writers, at all levels, interested in the process of publishing.

As an agent, she is drawn to fiction with unforgettable characters, an authorial command of voice, and a strong sense of narrative tension. She looks for work that explores the depths of human experience and the many facets of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social class, and regional backgrounds. She's agented books that have won the Pulitzer Prize, the MWA Edgar Award, the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, and the Carnegie Medal for Excellence. She represents upmarket fiction, suspense and thrillers, memoir, narrative nonfiction, young adult and children's books.
