PANDA-TASTIC TWITTER EVENTS
#PitDark is the first and only Twitter pitch event to highlight literature of a “darker” nature. Importantly, this is not limited to horror works; however, any pitched manuscript must contain an element of horror or darker writing. Examples of such categories include pure horror novels, dark fantasy, murder mysteries, psychological horror stories, etc. YA, NA, and adult age categories are welcome. This event is organized by Pandamoon's own horror author, Jason Huebinger. While we are supporting it and will be there monitoring pitches, there are many other fine horror publishers attending the event, as well as a whole host of agents who specialize in the genre. You can go here for more information.
Usually held twice a year (July and December), the #pitchmas events are hosted by Jenna (@JessaRusso) and Tamara (@FeakySnucker). You can learn more about their 3-Day PitchFest and Workshop here and follow them on Twitter for updates on these events.
For those of you with science fiction or fantasy novels, author Dan Koboldt (@DanKoboldt) has created a Twitter pitch party just for you. It's known as #sffpit and is held twice a year, in June and December. You can learn more here.
