Nebraska Writers Guild Spring Conference is back again and this time with a special event for writers who are ready to publish. The conference will feature Chip MacGregor, owner/agent of MacGregor Literary. Linda Camacho, a literary agent from Prospect Agency. Nina Amir, an inspiration to creation coach. Chris Soth, the developer of the Mini-Movie method and The Pitchapalooza. On top of the amazing, educational and inspirational sessions from the conference an hour after the last session is over on Saturday evening, Pitchapalooza will take place. To sign up to pitch you have to purchase a copy of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published: How to Write It, Sell It, and Market It through the Nebraska Writers Guild or one of our authorized dealers (a verifiable receipt is required). 20-25 people from the pool will be randomly selected by having their names drawn live during the Pitchapalooza to give a one-minute pitch. Writers receive one minute to pitch their book ideas to publishing experts Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry. The winner receives an introduction to an appropriate agent/publisher for their book. Anyone who buys a copy of the book will receive a free 20-minute consultation. If you would prefer to listen rather than pitch, you do not have to purchase a book and can still attend the event. The Pitchapalooza will be at 6:30 p.m. and is not included in the price of the Spring Conference. Members pay $20 in advance/$25 day of and non-members pay $25 in advance/$30 day of. For more information on the Pitchapalooza or the Spring Conference please see website.
