Enduring Spirits Untold Stories



Pitch appointments are opportunities to meet one-on-one with an editor or agent to discuss your manuscript, pitch an idea, or ask questions. The appointments are offered on Friday and are 10 minutes in length. You may apply for an appointment when you complete your registration form. You may make ONE appointment.

You are responsible for choosing the editor or agent to whom you wish to pitch. You will receive an email with a list of those editors and agents taking pitches and their bios so you can become more familiar with them. Please try to pick someone who best matches the genre you write. Those wishing pitch appointments are contacted in the order in which they registered. Appointments will be made in order of responses. You will be notified of your appointment time via email.

If there are open appointments at the time of conference, they can be filled at the pitch appointment table once appointments open on Friday.



We are lucky to have Collected Works, Santa Fe's favorite independent bookseller, handling our book sales this year. Owners Dorothy Massey and her daughter Mary are community treasures, supporting local authors and generously hosting readings, lectures, discussion groups and performances. They are delighted to be part of our celebration of women writers and will do a great job for us.

We have arranged for venues that will be accessible to a broad range of buyers, including local Santa Feans and tourists in town for the beautiful fall weather. Collected Works will set up the sales in the lobby of the Drury Hotel during the day Friday and Saturday. In addition, books will be available at both the reception Thursday night, and of course at the signing Saturday night in the Lamy Room.

WWW member Lucy Moore is coordinating the book sales and will be in touch with those who sign up on the registration form to sell their books.
