Every Word Counts: Crafting Successful Twitter Pitches


Twitter pitch events are day-long, hashtag-based events that give writers (and illustrators) the opportunity to pitch their work to agents and editors. They make pitching accessible to people who might not otherwise be able to attend other book events like conferences and be seen by publishing professionals who might not otherwise know about their work. During this workshop, I will provide information about specific events, guidelines, and hashtag tips; go over important story elements that can be helpful to include in a Twitter pitch; and give you the opportunity to practice writing and sharing your own pitch tweets.


Thursday, November 4, 2021 at 6 pm. The session will be recorded.
