Bliss Group Books, Molten Publishing, Riptide Publications, Sands Press, and Urbane Publications

We’re only a few short weeks away from #Pit2Pub on February 3, 2016!

#Pit2Pub is a Twitter Pitch Party for writers to tweet a 140-character pitch for their completed and polished manuscript(s) directly to publishers. If one of the writer’s pitches is favourited by a publisher, they may submit their manuscript by following their submission guidelines. Sounds cool, right?

As part of our awesome partnership with #Pit2Pub, we’re so excited to introduce you to the publishers participating in the upcoming #Pit2Pub event! Publishers will be listed alphabetically in a series of blogs over the next several days. Along with a brief description of each publisher, you will find a link to their website, social media pages, and a Publisher Spotlight with more information on submission requirements. Make sure to research these publishers before February 3rd!
