First, for those not familiar with #DVPit, it’s a Twitter event created to showcase pitches from marginalized voices hosted by founder and literary agent Beth Phelan. The next event will be in October. So, in preparation, Beth has wrangled some agents, editors and authors to give away critiques to hone writers’ manuscripts and/or queries before the event.
In order for writers to participate, they’ll need a twitter account. The giveaway tweets for each category will post at noon ET on the relevant day. The posts will be on the twitter handle @DVpit_ starting today. The events will be as follows:
- Tuesday, August 15 2017: Children’s, i.e. Picture Books, Chapter Books, Middle Grade
- Wednesday, August 16 2017: Young Adult
- Thursday, August 17 2017: Adult Fiction & Nonfiction
For the list of all the mentors involved for the specific dates, go here. As always, good luck!
