As you know, every three months there’s a Twitter pitch session called #PitMad. And every six months there’s a Twitter pitch just for science fiction and fantasy authors called #SFFpit. But they’re not the only Twitter pitches around. So for today’s post, I’m sharing a few upcoming pitches that you can take part in.
- V#PitchCB. #PitchCB is a one day event like #PitMad. But is hosted by the Curtis Brown Literary & Talent Agency. It launched last July and takes place every fourth Friday of the month. To take part, you pitch your manuscript in 140 characters, only once for the entire day, with the hashtag #PitchCB. If your pitch is favorited by an agent, then submit to that agent and follow their submission guidelines.
- #KidPit. #KidPit is another all day event for manuscripts targeted to kids. So if your manuscript is a picture book (#PB), chapter book (#CB), middle grade (#MG) or young adult, (#YA) this Twitter pitch is for you. You can pitch twice an hour from 8am to 8pm. And for any genre, including its category and genre hashtags. The next session for this Twitter pitch is April 1st.
- #FicFest. #FicFest is a new Twitter pitch that’s making its debut on April 24th. And hosted by author and editor Tiffany Hoffman. This particular pitch session is different from the rest as there’s an equal chance to get agent requests. Plus it also covers the five major writing categories: Children’s books, middle grade, young adult, new adult and adult. You can read more about the submission process here.
- #DVpit. #DVpit is a Twitter pitch event for diverse books. So if your completed manuscript showcases people of color, LGBTQ, disabled persons, etc. you might want to take part in #DVpit. Your pitch must be 140 characters including genre and category hashtags. You can only pitch once an hour from 8am to 8pm on April 19th. You can use the same pitch or several pitches for the same manuscript. You can also pitch another manuscript if its completed as well.
Did you take part in March’s #PitMad? Thinking of taking part in another Twitter pitch?
- Haven’t made any submissions this month. But still awaiting responses for my poetry submissions to the Women’s National Book Association and Gemini Magazine.
- Have to rethink my writing plan for my poetry manuscript “Triplicity.”
- Although I’ve been lethargic writing wise, I’ve been working on my adult, contemporary romance “Dreaming of You.”
- For National Poetry Month in April, I’ve been collecting poems for year 2 of “30 Days of Poetry Love.” Last year I interviewed 30 poets and shared an interview a day. This year, I’m sharing an anthology of my favorite poems. Collected at least 10 so far.
- As the newest member of Unicorn Bell, we’re doing a group A to Z challenge. And of course my theme will be poetry related.
- Once again I’ll be taking part in the 30 in 30 poetry challenge (writing 30 poems in 30 days) for National Poetry Month on Scribophile. I had decided to do one line poems but can always change my mind in the next three days.
