XpoNorth and the Association of Scottish Literary Agents presents…

Scottish Writers’ Tweet Pitch 2019! - 9am-9pm 11th January  2019


After the astonishing success of the last three years, XpoNorth’s Writers’ Tweet Pitch is back!

On Friday 11th January 2019  (9am-9pm) writers from across Scotland can tweet pitch their work to a panel of Scotland’s finest literary agents and publishers. 

We’re opening our twitter channels to pitches of unpublished fiction, nonfiction and writing for children from writers living and working in Scotland. 

Our panel of eager literary agents and publishers will read your tweet pitches as they come in, and if they like what they read they’ll make contact with the pitching writer directly  - to find out more with a view to potential representation or publishing.

In January 2018, XpoNorth’s pitch received more than 2500 tweets pitching hundreds of unpublished books, and we know that as a consequence many writers started the New Year with the keen attention of an agent and publisher!

Tweets are a maximum length of 280 characters, and this year pitching writers use just one hashtag:  #xponorth

Writers - to pitch your work - compose a pitch that really sells your books and include the hashtag #xponorth in your tweet.
