Please join us for our July monthly meeting with Kit Rosewater and Lindsay Leslie. While many writers continue to seek representation via the slush pile, Twitter is a platform that hosts an abundance of opportunities for writers who want to polish and pitch their manuscripts to agents. Various authors and agents have established contests that give writers a leg up when it comes to querying. In this presentation we'll be sharing the timeline of these contests as well as exploring their guidelines and uses for participants. Writers of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend, from those actively building their social media platforms to those still hesitant about signing up with Twitter. 

The monthly meeting will be immediately followed by an Open Critique Group for SCBWI members.
