I’ve written in a previous post that one of my sessions in the 2013 Emirates Airlines festival of literature is called The Quick Pitch 1 – Into the Literary Agent’s Den
This is what this session is all about
Do we really all have a novel inside us? How can we know how close we are to being publishable?
In this phenomenal opportunity to meet renowned literary agent Luigi Bonomi, you have 5 minutes alone with him to pitch your idea and get immediate, honest and succinct feedback. Bring along the first five pages of your manuscript for Luigi to read, a one-page synopsis, which you can also deliver verbally, and a 50-word written blurb summarizing what the book is about (as it would appear on the back cover). Any genre of fiction or non-fiction for any age group is welcome. Feeling strong enough to face the agent in his den?
Lets just say I freaked out a bit after I bought the ticket and realized what it really was
I … am going to … pitch Moonlight to Luigi Bonomi and have his opinion on my novel.
The novel I mentioned, I was so passionate about, the novel that I spent days and sleepless nights writing. I’m finally going to have an expert tell me if I’m good enough for not on Friday March 9th 2013 at 5pm.
Or at 5:05 to be precise is my time slot
I’m so nervous and yet I’m so excited!
Let’s just hope I don’t make a fool of myself on that day
Will update you with how it went =D
Until the next blog post
