And to wrap up the month’s festivities, we give you “The Writer’s Voice” Twitter Pitch Party!
If you want to play…
Pitch your finished manuscript on the hashtag #WVTP. (In
other words, your Twitter pitch must include the hashtag #WVTP; otherwise, the
agents will only see it if they're already following you.) You may pitch anytime
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
The agents will be hopping in and out of the feed during the
party hours (12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. EDT tomorrow) and tweeting their requests
for the manuscripts that pique their interests. Simple, right? Not if more than
one makes a request on the same pitch!
Keeping in the spirit of “The Writer's Voice,” if two or
more agents request the same pitch, you must choose one of them and announce it
in the feed. (They promise not to hold any rejections against you.)
If you get a request...
You must e-mail us at TheWritersVoiceContest(at)gmail(dot)com and
tell us which agent requested your work. We'll verify the request and send you the
agent's submission guidelines.
So get your Twitter pitches ready and meet us at #WVTP tomorrow,
May 24, at 12:00 noon EDT. Anyone may enter, including “The Writer’s Voice”
finalists and even other writers who didn’t make it into the contest, so it’s
sure to be a party! And don’t forget to check out the agents’ Twitter feeds to
get a feel for what they’re looking for:
