Word on the Street is a free writers/publishers festival hosted in five Canadian cities this Sunday, September 25.
The Halifax location offers closet writers an opportunity to ‘pitch the publisher’. Here’s their blurb:
“Are you a closet writer who has a secret desire to be published? Do you have a laboured-over manuscript in your lower desk drawer? Or have you thought up a great book idea that has yet to be written?
The Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association invites you to bring your book idea or simply your curiosity to Pitch the Publisher at this year’s Word On The Street Festival on the Halifax Waterfront.
On Sunday, September 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Pitch the Publisher will offer potential authors a unique opportunity to present their book ideas to a panel of Atlantic-based publishers. Panelists will give suggestions and feedback on how to develop book ideas or manuscripts for publication.”
