Pitching to the public
It may have been morning but the stars were shining on Saturday when some of Western Australia’s most talented writers were invited by their publisher, Fremantle Press, to pitch their work to an audience of event programmers, librarians and booksellers — and members of the 2021-2023 Emerging Writers’ Programme.
The works were brand new offerings by the Western Australian independent publisher covering a wide range of genres including children’s fiction and non-fiction, crime, memoir, and historical fiction.
It was also the first event to be held in the beautifully renovated City of Fremantle library in Walyalup Civic Centre.
