If your answer is yes, then get ready for #PitchMAS, an online pitch fest that gives you a chance to present your work directly to participating agents and editors.
The event runs from Dec. 5-12, 2014. It will include a pitch-honing workshop, a blog pitch party, and a Twitter pitch party. Between Dec. 7 (9 a.m. PST) and Dec. 8 (6 p.m. PST), you may submit your 35-word pitch via email.
On Dec. 11, the organizers will post the top 50 pitches. Participating agents and editors will make comments and requests. The Twitter pitch party will be held the following day, Dec. 12. Agents and editors will follow the hashtag #PitchMAS and read pitches from everyone, even those who didn’t make it to the top 50.
Get your manuscript ready now. You will be pitching on Twitter, so remember to keep your message to 140 characters or less, including the hashtag. You’re allowed to send two pitches per hour per manuscript. The biannual online event is hosted by Jessa Russo and Tamara Mataya.
