Pitchapalooza Success!

Thanks to everyone who attended our second Workman Community Event! It was a night of firsts: The first time Pitchapalooza had been hosted inside a publishing house. The first time guest panelist and Publisher of Algonquin Books Elisabeth Scharlatt appeared as a Pitchapalooza judge. And, at the end of the night, the first time in Pitchapalooza history that the judges crowned not one, not two, but three winners! For the full rundown (and the winners), check out what the Wall Street Journal had to say about it.

The one-minute pitches were flying and the judges’ advice spot-on, while Savannah and I tried our best to keep up–and keep their nuggets of brilliance to 140 characters or less (look for our tweets with the hashtag #pitchapalooza if you’d like a refresher)….

For those who were seeking out the unabridged version (forget 140 characters, the book has 4 times that in pages!), Workman’s Leslie Fannon was there to take orders.

Stay tuned for the next Workman Community Event…any special requests for future ones?  Leave ’em in the comments.
