Agents and editors are taking live pitches on the SavvyAuthors blog! What you will need is a three line pitch (unless stated differently on their personal pitch page). Be sure to state the title, genre, word length, and your author name. Then post your pitch below that information. The format should look like this:
Title: This Scary Manor Blows
Genre: Middle Grade Paranormal
Length: 48,000 words
Author: P.D. Pabst
Agnes plays pretend in an old manor to keep her father’s memory alive and learns she must solve the murder of an eight-year-old ghost—daughter of Franz San Galli, the inventor of the radiator. Her non-believing brother wants her to grow up but she must convince him to acquire his help. After all, it’s not safe to play in secret passages and hidden rooms when a more sinister specter threatens her.
Be sure to read the guidelines thoroughly before pitching. And don’t forget to research each editor/publisher and agent to make sure your manuscript fits their wish list. To pitch editors/publishers, go here. To pitch literary agents, click here. And don’t delay! The Pitchfest ends tomorrow, September 17, 2017 at 11:59pm, EST.
As always, good luck!
SavvyAuthors is hosing a Spring WOW’em Pitchfest for authors with completed and polished manuscripts. They’ll have agents and editors available on their blog from 9am May 17 to 11:59pm May 19, 2017 (Sorry they don’t mention time zone.) In order to participate, writers will need a three line pitch. And I believe the contest will take place directly in the comments. For complete rules, go here.
Please note the link on the contest page for agents seems to be broken, but you can find the participating agents here. You can also find the editors on this page. As always, good luck!

Sorry to say this one slipped by me! SavvyAuthors is hosting a Pitchtacular pitch event to Entangled Publishers. This includes Entangled Brazen, Bliss, Love Struck, Scandalous, Entangled Teen, Crave, Crush, Embrace, Entangled Select, and Entangled Scorched imprints. But this is a one day only event TODAY so you must hurry! The editors will announce their picks by November 6, 2016.

As always, good luck!
