The Writer’s Voice Twitter Pitch Party Rules
(Twitter hashtag: #WVTP)
Thursday, May 24 12PM – 6PM EDT
Here’s the rules…
Pitch your finished manuscript on the hashtag. You may pitch any time you see an agent online – just don’t go crazy and pitch more than once during an agent visit. We will monitor the hashtag and gently inform you if you’re being obnoxious. Make sure your pitch includes the hashtag #WVTP. The agents will be hopping in and out of the feed during the party hours. They’ll tweet their requests for the manuscripts that pique their interests. Simple. Right? Not if more than one make a request on the same pitch, it isn’t.
Keeping in the spirit of The Writer’s Voice, if two or more request the same pitch, you must choose one of them and announce it in the feed. (They promised not to hold any rejections against you.)
ETA: You can adjust your pitch for the same ms and you can pitch more than one ms. This is a free for all, the only rules are to be nice, pitch a finished ms and use 140 characters to do it in–and email us to get submission guidelines.
If you get a request…
After you get a request, you must email (make sure to include your twitter handle) us at firstname.lastname@example.org, tell us which agent requested, we’ll verify the request, and send you the agent’s/agents’ submission guidelines.
So get your Twitter pitches ready, and make sure to include the hashtag.
And follow the agents on Twitter…
