Workshop: PITCHAPALOOZA with The Book Doctors, Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry. 工作坊:PITCHAPALOOZA

Pitchapalooza is American Idol for books (only kinder & gentler). Up to thirty people can attend and twenty will be selected at random to pitch their book. Each writer gets one minute—and only one minute!  Many writers have gone from talented amateurs to professionally published authors as a result of participating in Pitchapalooza. At Pitchapalooza, judges will help you improve your pitch, not tell you how bad it is. Judges critique everything from idea to style to potential in the marketplace and much, much more. Authors come away with concrete advice as well as a greater understanding of the ins and outs of the publishing industry. Whether potential authors pitch themselves, or simply listen to trained professionals critique each presentation, Pitchapalooza is educational and entertaining for one and all. At the end of Pitchapalooza, the judges will pick a winner. The winner receives an introduction to an agent or publisher appropriate for his/her book.

Pitchapalooza是《美國偶像》的書本版–但比那真人秀更友好更溫柔。參與人數可多達三十人,其中二十位會被隨機揀選來推廣他們的書。每一位作家皆有一分鐘的時間–只有一分鐘!不少作家都是透過參與Pitchapalooza,從有才華的業餘文字工作者成為了被出版商認可的專業作家。在Pitchapalooza,評審們將會幫助你改善你的遊說技巧,而非一味批評你的不是。從中心思想到風格,甚至市場的潛在價值,他們也會給予你的作品有建設性的評論。作家們將會滿載而歸:不僅得到了實質的改善建議,對整個出版行業也會有更深徹的了解。無論這些有潛質的作家是在推銷自己的作品,還是只是單純聆聽專業人士對自己的演講和作品的評價,Pitchapalooza絕對是一個集教育和娛樂於一身的平台。在比賽的最後,評判們將會挑選一位優勝者–這位幸運兒會得到一個選擇合適自己作品的出版社的機會。
