JordanCon’s Got Slush!

Saturday Slush is back again! The first few pages of a book are important! JordanCon’s Got Slush is a live anonymous reading of submitted book openings by real acquiring editors and publishing professionals, and an analysis of what they liked and what they didn’t. Submissions are open! All submissions should be 600 words or less.

Elevator Pitches

Knowing how to pitch your book can be vitally important too. In this no-stress pitch critique, industry pros and editors listen to your pitch and tell you frankly what they liked about the pitch and what dragged it down, helping you to hone your hook, summary, and catch. No pre-reg needed, just come and raise your hand. Bring a pitch, hit the professionals with it, and they’ll let you know how effective you were. This is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, but be sure to check the schedule for the most up to date information.

Flash Fiction

Don’t just hear and talk about writing, do it! A guided flash-fiction writing session on Saturday morning where prompts are provided. We’ll give you a bit of time, then you’ll read your story to your peers. We love to see what comes from the amazing creatives who attend our convention!
