Agents get hundreds of written proposals and query letters on a daily basis. A face-to-face conversation with an agent might help your project get better attention.
This is a 10-minute personal meeting with an agent or an editor in which you “pitch” your book project.
For nonfiction writers, a pitch session is an oral proposal in which you lay out the basic idea of your project and its structure in the hopes of piquing the agent’s interest.
