Hey, everyone, I know this is late notice but the day isn’t over yet so I thought I’d post this information. Today is DV Pit (teen and children’s books). DV Pit is a Twitter pitching event where writers who have a completed unpublished manuscript and illustrators can pitch their projects. This event is for marginalized writers who have a completed unpublished manuscript. It’s for writers who have been historically underrepresented in publishing. This includes (but is not limited to): Native peoples and people of color; people living and/or born/raised in underrepresented cultures and countries; disabled persons (including neurodiverse); people living with illness; people on marginalized ends of the socioeconomic, cultural and/or religious spectrum; people identifying within LGBTQIA+; and more.
You pitch 6 tweet-pitches per project. Your pitch must: (1) fit the 280-character max, (2) include the hashtag #DVpit, and (3) include at least one category or genre hashtag.
Create a pitch and include #DVPit, #YA (young adult), OWN (own voices), POC (people of color), #MG (middle grade) #LGBT, #DIS (disability). Go to DV Pit.com for more information.
October 17, 2018, will be for Adult Fiction/Nonfiction (all genres, commercial and literary).
