MIT Press Pitchfest at the Boston Book Festival

Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 2:15pm to 3:30pm

Boston Book Festival 645 Boylston St. Boston, MA 02116

Editors receive hundreds of inquires each year. What makes one book project stand out from the rest? Pitchfest will give six contestants--out of dozens who submitted proposals--the opportunity to present their best science or technology book idea before a panel of judges and a live audience. The winner will be given the opportunity to workshop a full-fledged book proposal with an MIT Press editor, get advice on how to navigate the publishing world, and receive a $1000 cash prize.
