If you had 30 seconds, could you convince a literary agent or a publisher to take a chance on your book idea? To find out, enter Reedsy's inaugural Pitch Wars, where our panel of publishing professionals will react to shortlisted submissions and pick a winner!

For this first event, our judges will be:

  • Tom Bromley, Reedsy's Head of Learning and former commissioning editor at Little, Brown
  • Jon Michael Darga, Reedsy editor and a literary agent at Aevitas Creative Management

How do you take part?

To enter Reedsy's Pitch Wars, register here for a link to submit your pitch. Here are the rules:

  • Only submit ideas for books that haven't been published
  • Don't submit anyone else's ideas
  • Don't send in more than one submission
  • Keep your pitches under 100 words

The team at Reedsy will select two to three finalists from each genre to feature in our live-streamed event, where our judges will give their reactions, share their advice on what works (and what doesn't), and crown a winner.

What does the winner get?

The champion of Reedsy's Pitch Wars #1 will be entitled to:

  • A 30-minute publishing consultation with a Reedsy editor
  • A limited-edition Reedsy T-shirt
  • Bragging rights for being the first Reedsy Pitch Wars winner!

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 at Noon Pacific • 3 pm Eastern • 8 pm London • 12:30 am Mumbai • 3 am HK • 5 am Sydney*


*Note: For a.m. timings, the live stream will take place on the morning of Thursday 13th.

Note: Reedsy's Pitch Wars is inspired by, but not affiliated with, the sadly defunct program known as Pitch Wars #PitMad
