ALTA42 Pitch Session Sign-Up Form
The American Literary Translators Association is delighted to present Pitch Sessions for Editors and Translators at our 42nd annual conference.

Interested translators will have the chance to discuss a short sample of their work with an editor or publisher from prominent publications, such as Open Letter Books, co•im•press, Feminist Press, Graywolf Press, and more. Translators will be paired with a participating editor for a 5-minute mini-meeting, during which time the translator may pitch a project to the editor for possible future publication.

Applications will open on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 and will close at 11:59pm EST on Friday, September 27, 2019.
To be considered for a consultation, please fill out this form and choose a time slot below. Failure to show up at your selected meeting time will result your being barred from future participation.

**Note: These slots are first-come, first-served. If you require a certain time and day, we recommend booking as early as possible. By selecting an appointment below, you are committing to meeting at that time with an editor. By doing so, you have signed up and are confirmed for this time. Please note that participants are limited to ONE Pitch Session only.

The Pitch Sessions will be held this year on Saturday, November 9, from 10:45pm - 12:00pm, and on Sunday, November 10, from 9:00am - 10:45am. Sessions will be 5 minutes apiece.

Questions may be directed to Communications and Awards Manager Rachael Daum at rachaeldaum@literarytranslators.org.
