Do you have a great crime novel in you, just bursting to get out? Maybe you have a blockbuster of an idea but don’t know where to start getting it into print. This is the event for you. Our iconic Pitch Perfect session has been the opening chapter for several bestselling crime writers and now it’s your chance. All you have to do is stand up before a room of your peers and a panel of publishing experts, and make your pitch. This year’s panel consists of Phoebe Morgan (Publisher, Crime and Thriller at Hodder & Stoughton), Oliver Munson (Director of Literary Agency A M Heath) and Katie Ellis-Brown (Deputy Publishing Director for Crime, Thriller and Crossover Fiction at Harvill Secker) – chaired (expertly) by Jenny Brown.
