#FlipPit

This Thursday May 26th, there will be a pitching event like no other. 

The first of its kind.

It’s time to turn the tables…

#FlipPit is a twitter event where literary agents and presses pitch to authors. 

Graphic annoucing the date for #flippit is May 26

Rules:

  • Agents and presses can make their pitches between 8am and 8pm EST
  • Agents and presses can post up to 3 pitches during this time.
  • Agents and presses write their pitch as a tweet thread with three tweets:
    • First tweet is for your manuscript wish list
    • Second tweet is to tell everyone a bit about yourself
    • Third tweet is to tell authors how they can query you. 
  • We suggest that agents and presses pin their tweet thread so it’s easy for authors to figure out how to get in touch.
  • Agents and presses must be open to queries to participate.
  • Likes are for authors only, but RT and QT are encouraged to support agents and presses in the community. Acquiring is hard and lonely, and agents and presses need love too!
  • We have confirmed that a range of authors will be participating covering a wide variety of genres. These include speculative fiction, science fiction, and epistololoary blingblingroman. Maybe more!

It’s time for agents and presses to find their perfect literary match. The authors are ready to hit like.
