SCBWI PA West 2019 Webinar – Twitter Pitch Contests: Tweet Like a Pro and You Just Might Land Your Dream Agent (

Date - 06/25/2019
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Over the past few years, Twitter pitch contests have grown to huge proportions. Even though Twitter pitch events take place all year long, the second half of the year features some big ticket events like #PitMad, #PitWars, and #SFFPit.

Not only do you get to avoid the whole face-to-face pitch experience, but you get the chance to pitch to agents, editors, and publishers from the comfort of your own home—in your pajamas! But in a sea of tweets on an agent’s timeline, how will you know if your pitch will stand out from the rest?

Join YA author and editor at Author Accelerator, K.C. Karr, and award-winning author, Stephanie Keyes, for a live, Twitter Pitch dry run. They’ll cover how the contests work, what makes a good Twitter pitch, and the do’s and don’ts of participation.

Plus, submit your tweets live during the event and you may get yours critiqued for free during the session!
