Pitch your book to Jacana Media – in person!

Jacana Media is offering aspiring writers an opportunity to pitch their manuscripts to their editors on their second annual From Pitch to Publication session on 28 August 2018. Five out of 20 pitched manuscripts last year were picked up for publication.

Like many publishers who accept unsolicited manuscripts, we receive a large number of submissions every week. This means hours spent wading through many emails as we try to give every author feedback on their work.

Writers often try to arrange meetings with publishers, convinced that meeting the publisher in person will persuade them to publish the book, but with only so many hours in a day this isn’t always feasible.

We are offering you the chance to participate in a 15–20-minute session where you’ll be able to pitch your book to a panel comprising of three publishers and a high-powered bookseller. External panelists so far include Michele Magwood from the Sunday Times and Sharon Naidoo from Exclusive Books.

This is your chance to impress and persuade us in person to consider your work for publication.

Submissions are open from 1–25 July 2018.
