A.M. HEATH LITERARY AGENTS
A.M. Heath is hosting a week long event of pitches on twitter for unpublished writers seeking agent representation. Each day will focus on a different genre of fiction and authors are invited to tweet one pitch for their polished manuscript on the relevant day using the hashtag #TellAMH. The dates and themed events are as follows:
- Monday, September 18th: Crime/thriller/psychological suspense
- Tuesday, September 19th: Historical fiction
- Wednesday, September 20th: Women’s fiction
- Thursday, September 21st: Children’s fiction (any age group)
- Friday, September 22nd: Wild card (any genre)
A favorite from one of the agents or their assistant invites authors to submit directly to that agent via A.M. Heath website. (Be sure to mention that the tweet was favorited in the submission letter.) And for further excitement, they will select one winning pitch per genre the week commencing September 25, 2017 to receive a critique on the selected authors first 10,000 words!
Please be aware that A.M. Heath is based in London so that you pitch your genre on the correct date! Now, get those pitches ready! And don’t forget to check out the participating agents and assistants on their blog post so you don’t get scammed by trolls! As always, good luck!
