Pitch Events 2019 – Twitter and beyond

Hi all! For a little over a year now, I’ve been querying my second novel. While I have, I’ve also been participating in every Twitter pitch party I can. I practice them all the time, rewriting new pitches about every quarter. Twitter pitches are about the hardest thing I’ve ever written, so I find practice helps.

At any rate, how to write them is a different post altogether. In this post, I wanted to share the year’s calendar with you, and I promise to update it as dates come available. There is a large variety of Twitter parties. If you have a finished, polished manuscript, come join in on the fun! At the bottom, I’ve also included off-Twitter pitch events. Please feel free to drop info in the comments if there’s any I haven’t listed! I’m doing this list as much for me as anyone else.
