It’s called Pitchapalooza, the American Idol for books and it works like this: Anyone with an idea for a book has the chance to pitch it to a panel of judges. But they get only one minute. …The Judges critique everything from idea to style to potential in the marketplace and much, much more. … All attendees come away with concrete advice on how to improve their pitch as well as a greater understanding of the ins and outs of the publishing industry. The winner receives an introduction to an agent or publisher that is appropriate for their work.
