Event Details

The 2020 Book Pipeline: Unpublished competition is exclusively for unpublished manuscripts across 6 categories of fiction and nonfiction:

    • Young Adult
    • Sci-Fi / Fantasy
    • Mystery / Thriller
    • Literary
    • Outsider / Experimental
    • Nonfiction

Select publishers and agents get first look at the top selections for each category, including LGR Literary Agency, Katherine Tegen Books, and Verve Publishing.

Launched in 2014, Book Pipeline connects writers worldwide with publishers, agents, and the film industry. Through two submissions platforms–Unpublished and Adaptation–the company seeks both new and established authors and playwrights.

Previous winners include M Dressler’s acclaimed novel The Last to See Me, the true story Veteran’s Day from whistleblower Paula Pedene, and the award-winning play Application Pending by Tony Award Winner Andy Sandberg and Greg Edwards.

For 20 years, Script Pipeline has bridged the gap between up-and-coming writers and the industry through a unique, long-term, hands-on facilitation process. The result thus far has been $7 million in scripts sold to studios and networks since 1999. In total, across both Book and Script Pipeline, over 20,000 pieces of creative material are reviewed annually, with over 1,800 entries submitted to Book Pipeline in 2018.
