Luigi Bonomi: Quick Pitches
Date/Time: Friday 3 February 2023 11:30-13:30
Session No: 2
Are you ready to pitch your novel? You have five minutes to present your one-page synopsis, 50-word back cover blurb and the first five pages of your manuscript. Literary agent Luigi Bonomi will use his vast experience in the publishing industry – representing authors including top ten Sunday Times bestsellers Amy Lloyd, Susan Lewis, Fern Britton, Simon Scarrow as well as seven Emirates LitFest Prize (formerly Montegrappa Writing Prize) winners, all of whom ended up with book contracts from major publishers – to tell you if your book has a chance and what it takes to get that coveted publishing deal.
This year Luigi is particularly interested in crime/thriller novels and children’s fiction, so if you are writing in these genres make sure to make an appointment with him. Come prepared with your best pitch!
The Festival will contact you by the mid-January with the exact time of your slot.
