The Writer's Voice Twitter Pitch Party Rules
Thursday, May 24th 12pm EDT-6pm EDT
(Twitter hashtag: #WVTP)
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.)
If you get a request...
After you get a request, you must email 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...
