Event: Tweet Pitch 2017
Date: Friday 6th January 2017
After the astonishing success of last year’s first XpoNorth Tweet Pitch – our unique tweet pitch event for Scotland’s writers is back!
On Friday 6th January 2017 writers from across Scotland can tweet pitch their work to a panel of Scotland’s finest agents and publishers. We’re opening our Twitter channels to pitches of unpublished fiction and nonfiction from writers living and working in Scotland. At our end, our panel of eager agents and publishers will await the tweets, and if they like what they read they’ll make contact with the pitching writer to find out more with a view to potential representation or publishing.
In January 2016, our first Tweet Pitch received more than 2500 tweets pitching hundreds of unpublished books, and we know that as a consequence many writers started the New Year with the keen attention of an agent and publisher – and across 2016, books that were pitched on that single day made it onto booksellers’ shelves!
