It’s “American Idol” for books! Literary agent Arielle Eckstut and author David Henry Sterry team up with two guest industry insiders to form a panel of judges. The judges critique everything from idea to style to potential in the marketplace and much, much more. Whether potential authors pitch themselves or simply listen to trained professionals critique each presentation, Pitchapaloozas are educational and entertaining for one and all. The winner receives a half hour consultation with Eckstut and Sterry.
