PitDark Pitch Contest Hosted by Jason Huebinger

PitDark-May-October

 

This cool twitter pitch party will be May 23, 2019 and is hosted by author Jason Huebinger, the creator of #PitDark. This is one of my favorite contests because it’s strictly for manuscripts with darker elements, which is soooo down my alley. The event is between 8am and 8pm EST. Authors may pitch once an hour per manuscript. Please do not clog the feed by over pitching so agents don’t get frustrated and quit reading.
