We were saddened to hear that Pitch Wars was closing its doors after so many years. The organization and its quarterly #pitmad events created many opportunities and realized many dreams for authors, agents, and publishers alike. These events were a highlight for us in finding new talent to add to our publishing family, and so, CamCat will be continuing to facilitate #CamCatPitMad events once a quarter this year.
