PitchMAS in JULY!




PITCHMAS 2: PITCHMAS IN JULY IS COMING!!
What is PitchMAS, you ask?
Well, it’s an event
full of awesomeness that
Jessa (@JessaRusso) and
 Tamara (Feaky Snucker) / (@TamaraMataya)
created!




This will be a two-day event (you will not have to participate in both days if you don't want to) where you will have the chance to pitch your manuscript to your dream editor or literary agent!!!
Last year, we had over 108 requests from the blog pitches alone! The twitter party was harder to track as we had so many awesome agents and editors ninja the contest. We even trended!


*All manuscripts must be completed and polished. If they are not completed and polished, we suggest finding a critique partner - and hey, that's how the two of us found each other!*


We are currently compiling a list of super awesome publishing houses and literary agents who will participate, and we're really excited!





The schedule for the
PitchMAS in July is as follows:



SUBMISSION WINDOW
Sunday July 7th AND Monday July 8th





PITCHES GO LIVE ON THE BLOG
Thursday July 11th
{35 Words or Less}




TWITTER PITCH PARTY
Friday July 12th
{140 Characters or Less - obviously}




Follow along with the hashtag: #PitchMas



And be sure to follow Our Twitter account





Specific details and the list of editors/agents participating will go up soon. Please stay tuned!



Meanwhile, if you have ANY questions, please contact either one of us privately or comment below!

  4. I'm excited but a bit confused: It says specifically that the live Pitches on July 11 are to be 35 words or less and the Twitter ones, the next day, have to be 140 characters or less. Those, I understand.

    But, for the open "Submission Window" on July 7-8, does this mean the agents/editors will be "open" to "submissions" via email with query letters written in the usual manner for such submissions? Or, does this involve something different? Please explain...

    Thanks!
