WHAT IS ULTIMATE PITCHFEST?
In the tradition of Virtual Pitchfest, Writer’s Digest Conference Pitch Slam, the Great American Pitchfest, and many others, the Ultimate Pitchfest is hosting Colorado’s Ultimate Pitchfest – – and we’re doing it digitally!
The Ultimate Pitchfest is a video chat (think Skype or Zoom) day of opportunity where you get to pitch your work – – fiction AND nonfiction, all sub-genres – – to as many agents as you want.
Join us in Littleton on February 25th, 2017, and get 10 minutes of face time with as many agents, looking for stories like yours, as you choose.
Ultimate Pitchfest is a proven and highly-efficient approach to selling your book. In 2016, we had an 80% request rate!
And join us for the first ever Ultimate Pitchfest – Hollywood, when we Skype in agents and producers from LA to talk to Colorado screen and TV writers, and authors who want to pitch their book to Hollywood!
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND THE ULTIMATE PITCHFEST?
Practice you Pitch. Create relationships with agents. Pitch your book!
Having the chance to pitch and create a relationship with an agent dramatically increases a writer’s chance of being read, getting signed – – and selling their novel!
And yet, new authors often don’t have access to agents and editors.
Writers conferences are the usual way authors escape the query slush pile, but that often involves a big ticket price, and while the learning can be vital to improving our work, sometimes all we really wanted was to pitch the agents in attendance.
Further, most writers conferences only have a handful of agents available and you may spend the entire weekend waiting to give your pitches only to discover they aren’t even looking for new clients, or they’ve lost interest in your genre.
But what if you could meet with three, four, or even more agents in just one or two hours.
Ultimate Pitchfest has partnered with agents and editors actively looking for a new material and new clients in every genre field.
In a single day you’ll have access to more agents then you would in a year attending conference and at a fraction of the cost.
Save money. Maximize your exposure. That’s Ultimate Pitchfest.

Inclement Weather Concerns: We all understand that weather in Colorado can be unpredictable at times. If it snows on 25 Feb. 2017, we ask that everyone use sound judgement when making their travel plans. Should you chose, for safety reasons, not to attend, we will do our best to re-schedule you with the agent(s) of your choice on another day. And in the case of a blizzard, we will cancel UPF 2017 and reschedule in the Spring.
