Pitch the Publisher

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Pitch the Publisher Presented By Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association


Blow the dust off that manuscript and sort through your USB sticks – it’s almost time for the APMA’s Pitch the Publisher and Blue Pencil Café events at Word on the Street! WOTS will take place on Saturday, September 14th at the Halifax Central Library.

This year’s Pitch the Publisher will take place from 10 am to Noon and participants will get 5 minutes to pitch their book idea to a panel of Atlantic Canadian publishers. Publishers will provide feedback and if one of them takes an interest, they will ask for you to send them more information.


Want to take part or need more info? Email Chantelle Rideout at or call 1 902 420 0711. We’ll ask your name, contact info and a short (no more than 100 words, please) blurb about your book idea.  You can only pitch completed manuscripts and if you pitched a book in 2018, you may pitch again this year, but not the same book. Deadline is August 30th.

Those selected will be notified by September 11.
