WORD bookstore in Greenpoint for Pitchapalooza, the literary equivalent of The Voice or American Idol.
Pitchapalooza pits twenty authors against each other, with each getting one minute to pitch their book idea to a panel of judges. Each pitch is critiqued, and the winner will be introduced to an appropriate agent or publisher.
The event was founded by GG pals Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry, authors of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published and founders of The Book Doctors. Every author who signs up to pitch will receive a copy of Eckstut and Sterry's book, as well as a 20-minute one-on-two consultation with the pair of publishing pros.
Pitchapalooza is a nationwide tour, and after Brooklyn will be heading to San Francisco (October 7th), Ohio (November 3rd), and Illinois (January 19th/20th). Check the Book Doctors' calendar for registration information for this and future events.
