Welcome to #MoodPitch! We created this Twitter pitch event because we, like so many other writers, LOVE moodboards to go along with our WIP (works-in-progress). We love looking at them, we love making them, and we love using them to maintain the excitement while drafting our projects. And we know so many of you do, too! But there’s a lack of pitch events on Twitter that allow the use of moodboards. So we wanted to create something that allows for these beauties to be showcased.
Moodboards are a creative way to visually set the mood/tone of your WIP. There are several ways to create them, but we suggest starting with Canva as they offer templates, free images, and a plethora of other cool tools and elements.
Meet your hosts:

Jaimie Hunter is “not that kind of doctor,” specializing in public health rather than medicine. She earned a PhD in public health in 2015. Writing was an early passion, and now she pens thriller/suspense, romance, and contemporary fantasy novels. To-date, she is published in non-fiction and academia, but she can’t wait to add a novel to her resume.
When not writing (ha!), Jaimie can be found hanging out with her golden retriever, enjoying the company of friends, or working. You can find her on Twitter at @jaimiehunter or Facebook at @drjaimiehunter. Her web address is http://jaimiewrites.com.
Lula is a recovering PhD and a sci-fi nerd who writes speculative horror and sci-fi with romantic elements. She lives in the gorgeously soggy Pacific Northwest where she hate-watches every season of The Bachelor/ette, dreams of living in a tiny home, and attempts to channel her hyper-speed ADHD brain into a productive writing career.
She can be found on Twitter @lulalockwood.
Our goal is to fill Twitter with your beautiful images for a day, which represent the mood/tone of your completed, polished, ready-to-query manuscript. And, more importantly, connect you with participating literary agents and acqusitions editors who are interested in seeing more of your work!
