Pitching Appointments

HNSA is committed to assisting aspiring writers to reach their potential. With this in mind, we’re delighted to introduce pitching appointments to our 2023 conference program. Here’s your chance to pitch your manuscript to a stellar list of industry professionals.

Our pitch takers include Annette Barlow (Allen & Unwin), Tara Wynne (Curtis Brown Australia), Meredith Curnow (Penguin Random House Australia), Alex Craig (Ultimo Press), Rochelle Fernandez (Alex Adsett Agency), Suzanne O’Sullivan (HQ ), Katherine Hassett and Kirsty van der Veer (Pantera Press).

Purchase of a weekend or day ticket to the In-Person conference is a pre-condition to booking an appointment. There is a limit of 3 appointments per person to give as many writers as possible the chance to pitch. $20 per appointment.

Learn more and book your appointments here. Make sure you check out each pitch takers’ preferences first. Then perfect your pitch to fit the 10 minutes allocated to you.

Best of luck!
