Pitching To Agents
On Sunday you will have an opportunity to present a 15 minute pitch of your writings for publication to agents/editors. The registration form has a place for you to indicate your interest in presenting a pitch. Although the first pitch is free, a $35 charge is assessed for a 2nd opportunity to present pitch. This charge must be prepaid when you registering for the event.
We will be in touch with you to find out which agent you would like to pitch to, and schedule a time on Sunday.
Pitch Tips: Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to writing, everyone can benefit from a little coaching. Here is a link to an article that will help you in your pitch presentation.

Owner/Partner of Jago Ciro Entertainment
Kimberly Jago has been a talent manager for more years than she cares to admit. For many of those years, Kimberly served on the Board of Directors of the Talent Managers Association (TMA), and was the first elected East Coast based Vice President in the 50+ year history of the TMA. Although no longer with the TMA, Kimberly now shares her experience and perspective as a member Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of America (LMDA). Always having been a avid reader, Kimberly was thrilled when approached to represent a UK based published author, and quickly established a literary division with her company.
What she is seeking: Kimberly prefers books with strong voices, rich landscapes, and an air of the mysterious and fantastic geared towards young adults.
