Women’s National Book Association—San Francisco Chapter Celebrates its 20th Anniversary of Pitch-O-Rama! (Zoom)

April 29 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Women’s National Book Association—
San Francisco Chapter celebrates its 20th anniversary of Pitch-O-Rama!

Saturday, April 29, 2023. 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

At Pitch-O-Rama, up to 100 writers can pitch to
agents, book professionals, and publishers.

Unlike other pitch events, this is organized by volunteers of WNBA-SF, so the registration fee is affordable.

Since 2020, Pitch-O-Rama has been held online via Zoom, allowing writers the flexibility to pitch remotely from the comfort of their home.

Before the event, WNBA provides a pre-coaching session for:

  • Support on how to prepare a winning pitch

  • Advice on getting the most out of your time during the event

  • A chance to ask questions to book professionals

During the event, authors will join breakout rooms to speak to a book coach or a marketing expert. Agents and publishers will circulate among the breakout rooms to hear writers’ pitches and provide valuable feedback.

Pitch-O-Rama is open to all writers seeking representation—nonfiction, fiction, YA or children’s literature—but is primarily intended for those with finished manuscripts or book proposals.

To register, go to:

This event has limited capacity, so consider registering soon to secure your spot.


“Besides meeting three charming writers, I received useful feedback from professionals in the industry, and received a request for my book proposal. One publisher has even already given me great feedback on my query letter. And I still have other leads to follow up on!”

-Anniqua Rana

“Going through the day with the same group of writers made a huge difference. Practicing seven times in five hours really helped me hone my pitch. The format and price make this conference perfect for getting your pitch polished before attending a high-dollar conference and attempting speed-dating with agents.”

-Rebecca Inch-Partridge

“All the agents were eminently supportive, and I received great advice. My pitch evolved with each agent as I experimented and learned. Sometimes I read from my script, sometimes I winged it. By the end, I was plunged into existential questions about what I want my novel to be and do—invaluable.”

-Renée J. Anderson
