1. If I signed up for a Fast Pitch with an agent, where and when do I send my query letter—and what is a query letter anyway?

Your query letter must be emailed to FallbrookWriters@gmail.com by September 1, 2018. If you don't make the deadline, you risk losing your time with the agent to someone on the wait list.

Your query letter introduces you and your book to an agent—it's your sales pitch.

Be sure to include your name, phone number and email address in your letter.

2. May I sign up for more than one Fast Pitch?

No, sorry, the number of Fast Pitches is limited, so it's one per person. Any duplicate sign-ups will be deleted.

3. Is there a wait list for Fast Pitches?

Yes, there is a wait list for Fast Pitches. If all the Fast Pitch tickets are claimed, please email us to be added to a wait list. Indicate which agent you'd like to pitch, and send your email to FallbrookWriters@gmail.com.

4. May I contact the organizer with additional questions?

You certainly may! Send an email to FallbrookWriters@gmail.com.
