  1. Hi: A few days ago I requested a pitch to Anna Power either between 1145 and 1245 or 1525 to 1615 on Saturday, September 6th.

    As I’m going away this coming Saturday, August 9th for a week, and if I am able to do a pitch to Anna, I was wondering whether she is wanting to see synopses and first 3 chapters/whatever, as I have done before, at conference?

    Could someone let me know please – and thank you.

    • Hi Pamela,
      A pitch session is just that, your chance to pitch. If you wish to send work in advance to Anna I think you would be quite correct to do so, as you would do to the agent in the normal course of things, though mentioning in your covering letter that you are hoping to meet her in September at the conference. As ever, follow agency guidelines:
      I think submitting something for the agent to read in advance is good manners, but equally I do not think you should necessarily expect the agent to have read your proposal in detail. Be prepared to pitch as if they have read your proposal and as if they haven’t.
