Artwork from the PBPitch website
I can’t believe I almost forgot. This Thursday, October 26 is the next PBPitch Twitter event. I’ve participated a couple of times. It’s neat. You pitch your idea on Twitter using the #PBPitch hashtag. If an agent or editor favorites your pitch, you check their website for submission guidelines (follow them to the letter) and then submit your manuscript to them.
Rules (copied from their website)
*Pitch your PBs on twitter using #PBPitch.
*Pitch manuscripts only ONCE in the morning and ONCE in the Evening. (Once before 2pm and once after.)
*If you are an author/illustrator, you can attach an image to your PB manuscript pitch.
*Include Subgenre # if it applies.
#NF = Nonfiction
*Only agents and editors should FAVORITE a pitch.
*If they do, check their submission guidelines (and do your research) before submitting to them.
I am participating again this year because I have a handful of picture books that still don’t have a home yet. Anyone else here participating? Good luck to all!
