Book Pitch Party

Shaped as an interactive event and set in a beautiful bookstore, the Book Pitch Party is a highlight in the SHVIP agenda. In this event, the SHVIP fellows and the same number of local publishers are invited to pitch their best titles in a limited timeframe. Engaging, surprising and highly effective, this highlight of the SHVIP programme is widely acclaimed by all its participants.
