I’m happy to be part of the KidLitGN team creating a community for KidLit graphic novel creators. We’ve been busy working on a pitch event that’s happening in one week! We’re trying a new approach by hosting the regular Twitter pitch event and a website pitch event. Here are the details:
On May 5, 2021 from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. EDT, we will host a Twitter pitch event. Un-agented authors/illustrators will pitch their MG and younger GN/hybrid projects using the hashtag #KidLitGN.
The website pitch event starts at 8 a.m. May 4 and ends 8 p.m. May 6, 2021, EDT. The window to add your pitch, however, starts on May 4 at 8 a.m. but ends May 5 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Pitches after that time will be deleted. May 6 is an extra viewing day for agents/editors.
How they differ:
The website based event is open to un-agented authors/illustrators, plus un-agented illustrators-only. AND agented illustrators and agented authors/illustrators who have the go ahead from their agents to pitch their work to editors.
For the website event:
Un-agented authors/illustrators pitching GN/hybrid projects will post their pitches in the comments sections of the pages corresponding to the age category for their pitch: MG, Early GNs, and Comic-style (graphic) PBs. See: kidlitgn.com for detailsContinue reading
