Pitchapalooza is a free event, giving randomly selected writers one minute (and one minute only) to present their best "elevator pitch" to a panel of book experts. One lucky author will win an introduction to a literary agent in their genre.
The panel of judges includes author David Henry Sterry, literary agent Arielle Eckstut, Poisoned Pen Press acquisitions editor Annette Rogers and Changing Hands Bookstore co-founder Gayle Shanks.
Pitchapalooza follows an Indie Author Publishing Conference, offered by Changing Hands Bookstore, from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at South Mountain Community Library. For more information about the conference, call 480-730-0205 or visit changinghands.com
