Pitch Information for ORA Conference Attendees

Attention ORA conference attendees:

Scheduling for pitch appointments with Avalon editor Lia Brown and L.Perkins Literary agent Louise Fury will officially open at 9am, SATURDAY JUNE, 11th.

Lia Brown is looking for: Single Title, Category, Contemporary, and Historical.

Louise Fury is looking for: Single Title, Category, Historical, Paranormal, Young Adult, Middle Grade, and Picture Books.

We ask that authors signing up for pitch appointments have your manuscript completed at the time of the pitch (although Louise says she will happily offer query or submission advice to those who do not have completed manuscripts, so long as they tell her up front the manuscript is unfinished.) Appointments will run in ten-minute increments between the hours of 9am and 12:20 pm on the day of the conference, so spots are limited.

In your email, tell me who you’d like to meet with (first and second choice, if applicable). If you have a preference for time, you are welcome to mention it at the time of sign-up, but we cannot guarantees those requests. Scheduling will be done on a first come first served basis.

Contact conference chairperson Cecily Cornelius-White at professorcecily@yahoo.com for pitch appointment sign up beginning JUNE 11th at 9am (CDT), when scheduling opens.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at the conference!

  1. Hi – I’m excited to be part of the upcoming conference and have signed up and paid several days ago. However, I’m concerned that apart from my receipt from PayPal, I have received no confirmation from ORA that I’m a participant/attendee.
    Could someone please send me a confirmation note or a entrance ticket or some indication that I’m part of this exciting conference?

  2. I would like to schedule a pitch session. I have registered for the conference but have not paid the ticket yet. Thanks Kitty

  3. Sorry, I forgot to say that I do not have a preference. I write historical fiction. I would like to see both if possible but leave the order to you. Kitty
