Hey everyone!
The assistants of New Leaf are excited to announce that once again, we’re hosting a Twitter Pitch contest. We’ll be looking for stand-out pitches—tweeted by all of you—on behalf of the agents at New Leaf!
The rules:
  • The window to pitch your book ideas is Thursday, January 22 from 4-5 PM EST
    • Pitches are limited to 140 character tweets! Include the hashtag #NLpitchperfect. Please only pitch your project once (we will be looking at every tweet, so we will see it!) and submit one idea per entrant.
  • If your tweet is favorited by New Leaf, that means we want you to query us! Email your query (plus the first 5 pages of the manuscript, but please include this in the body of the email!) to query@newleafliterary.com with the words “Query” and “New Leaf Pitch Perfect” in the subject line.
  • We will be looking for manuscripts on behalf of Joanna Volpe, Suzie Townsend, Kathleen Ortiz, and Mackenzie Brady, so we’d love to see pitches for (fiction or non-fiction) MG, YA, NA, and Adult manuscripts. Please refer to our About Us page (http://newleafliterary.com/agents.cfm) for more details.
We signed the wonderful Kate Larkindale after our last Pitch Perfect and we’re hoping to find some great new talent once again! Looking forward to seeing how creative you can get in 140 characters!
