Pitching Roundtables (Day 2)— Each roundtable will have two agents and a group of pre-selected writers with book projects. You spend the day with your "table"—pitching, reading pages, and discussing your work.

Anyone can attend the Panels and Presentations, but you must apply and be selected to participate in the Pitching Roundtables.
