PitMad Agents & Editors

#PitMad Agents & their stars

source: krossel
Who were the agents and editors requesting at March's #PitMad Twitter Pitch Contest? Take a peek below to see who joined in the fun and what they were requesting.

Click on the links to be taken to their Twitter Favorites lists - many of them still have the pitches they picked listed.Even though the contest is over it can be pretty useful to see exactly what sorts of things each agent is craving right now.

Maybe your story is just what they've been looking for!


Note: This list isn't quite complete. I'm certain I missed a few agents here and there - particularly agents that didn't favorite, but asked to be @replied instead. If you know of one I forgot to include, let me know!

  1. Thanks for this! Added a few to my ever growing list. Although it sucks that a lot of agents aren't taking dystopian right now...

  2. All so exciting! Awesome compilation here!!!


  3. Do you have any idea how mind-bogglingly useful these recent posts have been? Thanks!

  4. I didn't participate in PitMadness (I'm a non-tweeter!), but it sure is nice to see the agents and all the things they're interested in. Thanks for posting! :-)

  5. I'm going to have to check these out when I get home. Twitter is blocked at my workplace. Thanks for the heads-up
