This is Amy Elizabeth with WriteOnCon. We're so excited to have you all here!
Our pitch sessions will be starting tomorrow, and you can find all the information you need right here: Pitch Sessions
If you'd like to pitch your query to agent Roseanne Wells, the submission window is now open! The submission window for queries is now closed. Check out the submissions that Roseanne will be reading in this thread.
Please e-mail your query to email@example.com before midnight tonight if you are interested in having your query critiqued. Pitches will be chosen randomly, but please note Roseanne is only accepting MG & YA for this session (no picture books or early reader/chapter books).
If you have any questions, please leave them below. :-)

Great question! While we don't have a hard-and-fast rule about this, I would highly recommend only pitching things that are ready, or very nearly ready, to be submitted to an agent or editor. If you pitch something that ends up being requested (yay!), and you aren't ready to submit ( ), it will put you in a little bit of a predicament. Of course no one will toss you out of WriteOnCon for pitching a WIP (duh), but we definitely recommend pitching completed works only.

It makes sense not to pitch if a MS isn't ready. It's my first WriteOnCon, and I just wasn't sure if the query sessions were more about offering feedback or agents looking for authors to rep. I'm so glad the forums are here for sharing WIPs.
Thanks for asking this question! I was dying to know myself. Sadly I didn't wait quite long enough for the response and sent off my WIP query. However, I clearly indicated in the first line that it was a query for a WIP so hopefully the agent doesn't waste any of her time on it.
