Pitch for the Prize

Thursday, August 1
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
St. Helen’s

A beloved Willamette Writers tradition, for the low entry fee of $5, twelve lucky writers get to pitch their WIP to a panel of agents and industry professionals. One winner will take home the Grand Prize of all the entry fees.

As a great bonus, many past pitchers have also gotten manuscript requests from the members of the judging panel. Come listen to the feedback the panel gives, so your pitches will be that much stronger all weekend.

We will have four rooms running Pitch for the Prize this year: two for fiction, one for nonfiction, and one for screenplays. Get there early to sign up
