Writing is often seen as a solitary task but to send our work out into the world we need other people. In this session we will look at two different ways of launching our writing into the world. Amy Paulussen and Mel Dixon will focus on pitching to international literary agents and editors. Amy found interested publishers via a Twitter Pitch competition, and this led to her working with a New York literary agent.

Mel won a mentorship with an Australian editor through a similar competition. But the traditional route is not for everyone, and we will have Adam Hayward from BOOSTED talking about crowd funding: an increasingly popular and effective route to publication. Unlike other crowd-funding sites, BOOSTED is specifically for the Arts in New Zealand and offers great support to their artists, with an incredible success rate.

Regardless of how you hope to publish, this session has something for you. We will look at the nitty-gritty of crafting a succinct pitch, and at the broader picture of how best to share yourself and your work with those who might contribute to your journey as an author.
