CityLit Festival
April 16, 2016
University of Baltimore
Student Center Cafe
(Corner of W. Mount Royal and Maryland Aves.)
4:00 – 6:00 pm
To register for CityLit Festival’s “Agent Pitch,” writers must do so with a credit card online by going to CityLit’s secure “donation” page and follow the instructions as if you were making a $20 donation.
As part of this online registration process, please note in the COMMENTS box that you are registering for the agent pitch session, the name of your manuscript, word count, and genre.

Each participant will have 5-10 minutes with the agent at her discretion, based on the level of feedback needed. Please bring two copies of your 250 word pitch with you–one for the agent and one for you.

Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is very limited!

Some of her favorite writers are: Graham Greene, Barbara Kingsolver, Colin Thubron, Orhan Pamuk, Barry Hannah, Mark Richard, Michael Griffith, Flannery O’Connor, Diane Ackerman, Jasper Fforde, Michael Crichton, Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury.
