Pitch Perfect is back! If you have a draft of a picture book or a book for preteens or teens, and you’re not sure what to do next, Pitch Perfect: Kid Lit Edition is the perfect opportunity to get direction and industry advice.
This year, all Pitch Perfect sessions at FOLD Kids will take place virtually, so it’s more accessible than ever.
Pitch Perfect is a Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD) event that gives writers with a finished draft or completed manuscript the chance to have an editor or agent review a portion of their manuscript and a query letter, who will provide detailed feedback in a private, one-on-one meeting.
The meetings will take place online, at a date and time determined between the participants and their editor or agent facilitator. Ideally, all sessions will take place between September 27 – October 4, 2020, the week before FOLD Kids.
This year, all of our Pitch Perfect sessions will take place virtually. We encourage applications from all across Canada! We are particularly interested in stories by and from marginalized authors. We will be prioritizing stories by Black and disabled writers.
