You're right, they'll probably have to put him on the panel again...

has anyone ever pitched a thinly-disguised version of something that's already been published?

lucky lucky lucky i ain't going, cos ive actually got a future shock pitch which rocks, this would in fact ruin the entire event as i'd spend the run up to pitchfest getting in a state/ drunk panicing about wether i could do it, if i did it i'd blush so red the windows would slump, shake so much it would measure richter 9, & mummble & giggle & fient ineffectively for 3 minutes, whereupon i'd have to go shoot myself.  OR i could not do it & spend the entire weekend kicking myself & getting in a state/drunk about being such a cowardly stage-horror person....

unless... i could get into character & wear the firey gear which instantly transforms me into shouty authority woman... if i covered the helmet with tinfoil it would be perfect !....maybe some fake blood, a small doe eyed manekin, some radios, cutting gear, oh and yes i'd need a space ship... then my pitch would Rock !

maybe i'll just draw it up & email it?

Everybody should do pitchfest. I'm always a bit shocked that they aren't beating prospective writers off with a stick, screaming "Only ten! The other ninety of you must wait for next year!"

I remember jast year Jamie going round asking likely folk to step in and make up the numbers...
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

Me too... What the hell! I've never been known to turn down a change at possible glory (there IS glory, right?).

"change"... Which is of course an alternative spelling of "chance", and not in any way a typo.
