I have news of another #Pitching opportunity – #Pitcharama. #Pitcharama is run by my good friends at AussieOwnedandRead, but don’t panic if you’re not from Australia, this is an international #Pitching Comp. Quick additional note, this is for Young & New Adult (YA & NA) only
#Pitcharama will open for submission on the 16th of June; here are some details:
You can find terms here: http://aussieownedandread.com/2014/05/22/pitcharama-competition-announcement/
And here’s a brief overview:
#Pitcharama is focused on publishers rather than agents, so if your submission gets picked, it’ll be placed directly before a list of publisher. If you wish to enter:
1. You must have a completed, pitch-ready manuscript.
2. You must sign up to their list (go to the link above and below for more information)
3. You must post your 250 word pitch on your blog on June 16, 2014.
From there, the Aussie Owned and Read team members will each pick three of their favourite pitches to highlight on the blog and put in front of our team of independent publishing partners who then may request to see more of your manuscript on June 27.
We will also have the Pitch Your Mate bonus round, where a friend can promote your manuscript on their blog (details coming soon) for another chance to be selected.
So, what are you waiting for? Start sharpening those 250 word pitches, and make sure you keep your eyes on our blog for more details as they occur, including some of the success stories from 2013′s competition. Don’t forget to hashtag #Pitcharama on twitter so we can join in your conversations.
Lamingtons and love,
The Aussie Owned and Read team
