Buzz Panels Submissions (Adult, Young Adult, and Middle Grade)

BookExpo's annual Buzz sessions are one of the most prestigious panels in the publishing industry. Each year the Buzz sessions introduce the breakout YA, middle grade, and adult fiction and non-fiction books of the coming year. Novels like The Woman in the Window, Room, The Maze Runner, Fangirl, and Everything, Everything began their long list of accolades as BookExpo Buzz finalists and eventually became world-renowned bestsellers. 

For BookExpo, we want to help you showcase as many of your terrific authors as possible, so don't be bashful and submit as many as you like. And for BookCon, while the show's core remains YA, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and Mystery/Thriller we've seen tremendous growth the last few years with authors that reflect and write about what's going on in our world today. Therefore, don't hesitate to submit authors who write about #MeToo, immigration, equality, politics, graphic novels, as well as celebrity, pop culture, and book-to-screen which our fans will always crave and love!

PLEASE NOTE: Before submitting one of these panels, please review our rules & regulations
