This just encourages me that I’m getting better at Twitter Pitches. Be sure to visit 4 Tips for a Stellar Twitter Pitch for advice on how you can win too!

Now to the good stuff.

FYI, this is a massive list of tweets. It’s not the entire list, because I’m just one person and #PitMad tends to break twitter. But I tried to capture as many tweets as possible to give a good idea of what each notable Agency, Publisher, and emerging Publishers are looking for.

Run down of the Favorited Tweets is organized by Publisher or Agency (Not including Middle Grade or Picture Books for the purposes of this blog):

It’s important that we understand what each publisher and agency is really looking for, and seeing what kind of pitches they favorite is a great indicator.

*Note1 I have listed tweets based on favorites of Twitter users that are clearly agents or editors. Any favorite that didn’t have an obvious attached persona did not get listed here as I did not believe it to be a genuine favorite for #PitMad.*

*Note2 This is a handmade list based on tweets and their favorites after the event. I have a lot here but I know I missed a lot too. If I missed your awesome pitch+favorite and would like to see it here feel free to let me know!*
