#PitchCB is the monthly Twitter pitching contest for debut and un-agented authors, hosted by the agents at Curtis Brown and Conville & Walsh. Authors are invited to pitch their book using a maximum of 140 characters, making sure to include the hashtag #PitchCB. Full details about how to take part can be found here.
On January 29th, the agents at Curtis Brown and Conville & Walsh will also be choosing their ten favourite #PitchCB pitches and offering a guaranteed entry to Discovery Day 2016 to the lucky authors.
Discovery Day 2016 will be the third event for new novelists to be held at Foyles, Charing Cross Road, in association with Curtis Brown and Conville & Walsh. Now sold out, hundreds of authors will attend Foyles for one-on-one agent meetings, group ‘writing surgery’ sessions, and an author panel event featuring author Emma Healey, her Curtis Brown agent Karolina Sutton and Viking publisher Venetia Butterfield.
Winners will be announced from the Curtis Brown Books Twitter on Monday 1st February. All winners will be notified via Twitter.
