Illustrated by Atanu Roy, India.

Part of Writers & Illustrators Conference.

At this year’s AFCC, we invite authors to pitch their children’s books manuscripts to a publishing professional in five minutes or under.

In this Speed Pitching session, AFCC Writers and Illustrators Conference delegates have the opportunity to pitch their children’s books ideas to literary agents and publishing representatives from Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, and the USA. If you think your manuscript could be the Next Big Thing, book a 5 minute slot with one of our panelists and pitch your story!

This session is open to all AFCC Writers & Illustrators Conference participants.
