You are allowed to pitch twice, per manuscript, during the #LatinxPitch event. See Rules for Writers.
Twitter allows 280 characters per tweet. Your pitch, plus desired hashtags, must fit within this parameter.
All pitches must have #LatinxPitch as part of the 280 characters and at least one category, i.e., PB (Picture Book)
Consider these tips when creating your pitches:
- Comparative book titles
- Hook the reader in the first few words
- Concept, character, and conflict
- Personalize the stakes
Here’s a basic formula:
(MC) is/has (Status Quo), but when (Inciting Incident) happens they must (Flawed Solution) or else (Consequence) #LatinxPitch #YA
Tweak and adjust according to your specific manuscript. Create several pitches and find which two you think best describes your book.
