Canadian Literature Pitch #CanLitPit

A message about the Canadian Literature Pitch!

 #CanLitPit (Canadian Literature Pitch) will return on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. Last February, #CanLitPit became the #6 trend on Twitter with over 500 pitches posted by Canadian writers across the country. #CanLitPit received support from The Vancouver Writers Festival, Word on the Street Toronto, and the Ottawa Writers Festival which established the event as a can't miss opportunity for Canadian writers. 

Organizers are pleased to announce that two writers who participated in #CanLitPit 2017 were signed to publishing contracts by established Canadian presses. One of these authors, Monique Grey Smith, encourages all Canadian writers to participate in #CanLitPit as “beautiful things really can happen!” Monique’s book, Tilly and the Crazy Eights, will be published with Second Story Press October 2018.

As a reminder, this fun and interactive online event provides  the opportunity to pitch their unpublished manuscript to potential Canadian publishers. Past participating publishers include ECW PressCoteau BooksBookth*g, Turnstone Press, Goose Lane Editions, and many more. 

Organizers are currently in the process of confirming 2018 participating publishers which will be announced on their website and social media in the coming weeks.
