At this year's annual Pitch-O-Rama hosted by the Women's National Book Association, Brenda Knight will share her top ten tips for publishing success. Knight will also be accepting face-to-face pitches for book ideas from all attendees wanting to get their start in publishing. In the words of the WNBA, "This is a rare opportunity to pitch one-on-one to some of the Bay Area’s best publishing professionals in an intimate, informal setting." Brenda Knight is the founding publisher of Viva Editions, an ever-growing indie press that publishes non-fiction books that inform, enlighten, and entertain.
In addition to offering invaluable pitching time for aspiring authors, the Pitch-O-Rama will also feature a panel on whether the categorization of "Women's Fiction" is helpful or harmful. Other industry professionals include Peter Beren, Amy Cloughley (Kimberly Cameron), and Rachel Neumann (Parallax Press).
