#MoodPitch is Twitter’s newest and coolest pitch contest for authors of completed, polished, query-ready manuscripts. We help you connect with agents via a pitch contest that includes… MOODBOARDS!
These visually appealing images help to depict the tone and themes of your story. So many people love to make them and share them, but there are no dedicated, actively running pitch contests to showcase them for any writer demographic, age category, and genre! Enter Kathleen Foxx, Jaimie Hunter, and Lula Lockwood, the founders of #MoodPitch. We work hard behind the scenes to bring you this amazing pitch contest to help you on your way to traditional and indie publishing. Our mission is to be as inclusive and accessible as possible, so while we do have “guidelines” for our events, we do have one requirement: using ALT text on your moodboards so that your images are accessible to all. (Read more about that on our Guidelines page.)
Our inaugural event was absolutely amazing! So many writers, agents, and publishers were out in full force on April 7, 2022. Our second event was on November 3, 2022 and it was even more incredible than the first one! We are working on updating the success stories and testimonials here!
As the world of Twitter has been crumbling, we know there is concern about what will happen to #MoodPitch going forward. We will be on Twitter as long as it’s still standing and a beneficial place to be. In the meantime, we are working hard to find an alternative platform that will allow us to keep our two most important goals in mind: to remain inclusive and accessible.
Agents and acqusitions editors heavily participate in the events, so please visit the Guidelines page to see who’ll be perusing your pitches. Our list includes agents and editors who have confirmed their participation—but please keep in mind that other agents and editors are welcome to participate, so you never know who you might get a like from! Also, check out the Resources and FAQ pages to learn more about the contest and how to pitch your work appropriately. Writers please note: this event is not for freelance editors to like your pitches and sell their services, so please do your due diligence in vetting the likes you get on your pitches before you send materials to anyone.
Good luck, writers!
NEW! Now you can subscribe to our newsletter (starting soon) to ensure you’re always up to date with all things MoodPitch. We promise not to be spammy or give/sell your email address to anyone. In the event that Twitter takes a nosedive, we want to ensure you still have a way to stay in the loop so you don’t miss out on important updates and event information. We intend this to go out approximately every month, with perhaps a bit less activity during the times in between events.
