More events to enjoy this year!

For this year’s conference, we’re adding to all the festivities that you’ll get to enjoy!

We’ve updated Pitch With the Pros on Thursday night to Pitch For the Prize!

Choose your room — Literature or Film —and $5 buys you a two minute pitch in front of a panel of experts who will evaluate and make suggestions for improvement and a better sell. Best of all? The person our pros decides has the best pitch gets to keep all that cash!

Along with the Welcome Reception on Friday night, we’ll also be hosting our 3rd annual FiLMLaB event with the winner of the Script to Screen Competition.

For Saturday, we’re adding a Success Party so you can celebrate your good news from the previous two days with your peers. After that, it’s the Gala Awards Banquet honoring our Kay Snow Writing Contest winners, our three Annual Awards winners – authors Jess Walter, Ivan Doig, and Justin Hocking – and featuring our keynote speaker, Diana Gabaldon.
