How to Pitch a Chronicle Books Editor for Charity

On Wednesday, December 8th, San Francisco authors can pitch a Chronicle Books editor, receive in-person feedback, and raise money for charity at the same time.

The Pitch for Charity event lasts from 3:00–5:00 p.m., and participants should contribute a suggested donation of $10 for Habitat for Humanity. If you need to polish your book proposal, check our Best Literary Agents on Twitter directory for inspiration and advice.

Here’s more about the event: “You arrive at 3:00 p.m. with your materials. A Chronicle employee will check you in and sign you up for a ten-minute time slot. When it’s your turn, be ready to give your pitch in five minutes or less. The editor will use the remaining five minutes to ask you questions about your project and give you constructive feedback.”
