XpoNorth TweetPitch 2022

The annual XpoNorth Tweet Pitch, produced in association with the Association of Scottish Literary Agents, gives writers from across Scotland the chance to pitch their work to a panel of Scotland’s leading literary agents and publishers. Writers of all levels and from all genres have the chance to land a book deal by simply pitching their work in 280 characters or less and tagging #XpoNorth. Completed work or projects still in development will be considered from writers living and working in Scotland. The only requirement is that the work must be unpublished.
