Algonkian and New York Writers Workshops Present The NYC Pitch and Shop Writers Conference

This conference is a unique opportunity for writers with completed novel manuscripts, narrative non-fiction, or works-in-progress to not only workshop their novel with professional fiction editors, but meet and pitch top acquisition editors from major publishing houses such as Ace, Berkley, Doubleday, Penguin, Random House, Viking, and more. Following the conference, on an average, one out of three projects are requested for a close read by publishers.

Stop by the conference news page for the latest updates on project requests and contracts signed. Simply put, the NYC Pitch and Shop goal is to set writers on a realistic path to publication by providing not only opportunity, but guidance on the novel from the best industry professionals in New York.
