On Wednesday, August 10, 2016, Canadian writers from coast to coast are invited to pitch their unpublished and polished manuscripts as part of #CanLitPit (Canadian Literature Pitch). Using the hashtag #CanLitPit as well as manuscript specific age and genre hashtags, writers will be able to post their pitches between 10 AM and 10 PM to be reviewed by a number of established publishers and literary agents. If a writer’s pitch receives a “like” (heart button) from a participating publisher or literary agent, a writer should submit their manuscript following that publisher or literary agent’s guidelines.
One of the many participating publishers is Goose Lane Editions. Learn more about Goose Lane Editions below!
