SCBWI Pennsylvania: West 2019 Webinar – Twitter Pitch Contests: Tweet Like a Pro and You Just Might Land Your Dream Agent
June 25th at 7:00pm EDT
25 for SCBWI members/ $35 for Non-SCBWI-members
Over the past few years, Twitter pitch contests have grown to huge proportions. Even though Twitter pitch events take place all year long, the second half of the year features some big ticket events like #PitMad, #PitWars, and #SFFPit.
But in a sea of tweets on an agent’s timeline, how will you know if your pitch will stand out from the rest?
Join YA author and editor at Author Accelerator, K.C. Karr, and award-winning author, Stephanie Keyes, for a live, Twitter Pitch dry run. They’ll cover how the contests work, what makes a good Twitter pitch, and the do’s and don’ts of participation.
Plus, submit your tweets live during the event and you may get yours critiqued for free during the session!

Agent Claire Draper – The Bent Agency
Date(s) – 06/23/2019
3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
Diversity in Children’s Books and Doing It Well with Agent, Claire Draper with The Bent Agency.
The entire book community is talking about diverse books for all ages. But how can we aim to create diverse picture books, middle grade, and young adult books, and how do we do it well? Claire Draper, agent at The Bent Agency, will be talking about what she loves seeing in queries and manuscripts, and how you can aim to put your best foot forward when writing and illustrating for a diverse audience. We’ll talk about why this is important and what you can do to be part of this step towards inclusivity in your own books. Claire will be giving examples of many intersections of diversity and the do’s and do not’s of representation.

This is an important topic in children’s publishing even if your characters are not diverse.
