I am very excited to announce something completely new for SiWC this year. We will be offering FREE pitch practicing sessions so you have a chance to perfect your pitch before firing it at your favourite agent, editor or publisher.
Author and long-time friend of the conference Beverly Boissery will be available for you to practise with on Friday and Saturday, all day. She will be sitting at a table in the Fraser Room, and will be taking appointments from the very first morning of the conference. If you'd like to have someone impartial and experienced to evaluate what you have to say and perhaps give you a few tips on the best way to say it, Bev is your woman!
We'll have a sign set up directing anyone interested to a volunteer, who will be scheduling these Practice Sessions. Sign up early -- this trial event will be on a first-come, first-served basis only!
