Writer’s Track

BookCon isn’t just for readers! Start your next chapter and put your best foot forward on becoming a writer with programming for aspiring writers at BookCon!

Brand new for this year, BookCon will feature a Writer’s Track included in your ticket purchase and available on a first-come, first-served basis. In the Writer’s Track, writers of all levels will be able to participate in specific events catered just for them. Check out our events below, with more to come!


Dozens of talented writers have become professionally published authors after participating in Pitchapalooza. You could be the next! The Book Doctors, literary agent Arielle Eckstut and bestselling author David Henry Sterry, are back to hear your book pitch at BookCon! At Pitchapalooza, writers will be selected at random to give one-minute pitches for their book ideas to an all-star panel of publishing experts. Judges critique (in a kind and gentle way) idea, style, potential in the marketplace, and much more. The winner receives an introduction to an appropriate agent or publisher for his/her book. Twenty Pitchapalooza participants will be selected at random for a chance to pitch their books from everyone who signs up in advance.
