Australian Songwriting Conference - opportunity for feedback

A while ago I signed up to attend the Australian Songwriting Conference in Ettalong Beach, NSW in June. I wanted to expand my networks and find new influences and opportunities. It's gonna cost a heap (I'm paying it off) but could be a good investment. The people at ASA speak highly of it and it has an international speakers list.

The ASC has several elements that seem useful. It has a songwriting contest within the Conference, a Buskathon, a live recording studio, lots of showcase oportunities, and pitch sessions involving actual publishers and key people who can make decisions. It's the last one that grabs my attention. If my songs are any good, I should be trying to get publishers to approve of them, right? Opportunity knocks ...

So, think when I've finished recording Alive and Alone I'll dump some of the songs and pitch them to the ASC peoples. The people listening to the pitches are from Alberts, Hillsong, and to managers with big reputations. Not sure which songs I'll pitch to who ... guess that depends on how they come out ... but I'm keen to have a go ... see what they say. After all, that's the point of the process, right?
