Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
We consider ourselves genre agnostic so are open to a wide variety of projects. However, between the team, we have our favourite genres such as comedy, science fiction and mystery. We are particularly drawn to ideas that are author inspired and like to become involved at an early stage.
