Pitch session with Julie Stevenson

20.00

Literary agent Julie Stevenson, of Massie & McQuilkin in New York, is eager to meet people for 10-minute, one-on-one sessions. Sessions will run between 9 am and 12 pm on Wednesday, September 27 and again on Thursday, September 28.  Julie will be donating the proceeds of these pitch sessions to the Montana Book Festival. 

The pitch session is for participants to receive feedback and ask questions about pitches, pitch letters and the industry. Book-deals and agent-signings rarely happen in this type of environment - rather, Julie wants to offer guidance to writers, at all levels, interested in the process of publishing.

As an agent, Julie Stevenson is drawn to fiction with unforgettable characters, an authorial command of voice, and a strong sense of narrative tension. She looks for work that explores the depths of human experience and the many facets of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social class, and regional backgrounds. She's agented books that have won the Pulitzer Prize, the MWA Edgar Award, the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, and the Carnegie Medal for Excellence. She represents upmarket fiction, suspense and thrillers, memoir, narrative nonfiction, young adult and children's books."
