New York Pitch, Algonkian, and Shooting Galleries

The mother forum for Algonkian Writer Conferences, New York Pitch Conference pre-event, as well as the genre "Shooting Galleries" wherein Algonkian alums can post their novel sell sheets for examination and possible selection by industry professionals going forward into 2021. We can't think of a better way for writers to test market their work and perhaps even score a contract as a result.

Writing a novel is often like taking a new vacation that begins with much hope and enthusiasm only to transition later into highway breakdown and several nights at a seedy motel.
