We wanted to take a moment to showcase some of the wonderful things that people had to say after participating in our inaugural event on April 7/22. The sense of community that we see during pitch events warms our hearts and we are so fortunate to be a part of that.
But before we get to testimonials, we want to offer our sincere CONGRATULATIONS to Lucy Chalice and Anne Perry at Ki Agency! This is our first official success story where a writer has found her agent through participating in #MoodPitch! We couldn’t be happier for you, Lucy, and wish you much success on your publishing journey!
We now have a total of SIX author-agent/publisher success stories after our inaugural event! Joining Lucy on the list is Lizy Simonen with Lina Langlee at North Lit Agency, both Kyle Anthony and Eva Langston with Alexandra Lake at Janklow Nesbit, Summer Feaker with Sydney Queen DeTellis at WordLinkInc, and Rae Knowles, who not only got pitch attention which led to her book, The Stradivarius (May 2023), getting a deal with Brigids Gate Press, but it led to a multi-book deal!
Success comes in all different shapes and sizes. Since building a community is such a huge goal for us, we consider it a success when so many writers come together, share their love for their projects, and support and lift each other up. THIS is what the #WritingCommunity is all about. Pitch events are not only about getting agents and publishers. Yes, of course, that’s what we all ultimately would like. But not getting a like from an agent or acquisitions editor doesn’t mean your project isn’t fabulous. So let’s take a moment to recognize some of the wonderful comments that flooded our feed after a day full of gorgeous moodboards and compelling pitches!
Do you have a success story? Did you make new writer friends or get agent/publisher likes? Did participating eventually lead to an offer of representation or a book deal? Let us know so we can share your story!
We look forward to continued success with future events! And THANK YOU for your participation, whether you’re a writer, agent, or publisher! We couldn’t do this without you!
