General Information

KidLitGN hosts an annual pitch event in October for writers and illustrators of middle grade and younger graphic novels, designed to get their manuscripts in front of agents and editors (sorry, no YA or adult at this time).

We are hosting a Twitter pitch event on October 6, 2021 for un-agented authors/author-illustrators (see here for details).

Our corresponding website event, starts October 6, 2021 and agents and editors can view pitches until October 8. PLEASE NOTE: You can begin adding your website pitches starting at 8 a.m. Oct. 2 until 11:59 October 5. Any entry after that time will be deleted.

The website event includes space for un-agented authors and author-illustrators, plus illustrators-only, and agented authors/author-illustrators. See here for details.

NOTE: The comments sections for the age categories will remain off until the pitch event is open.

Un-agented GN writers and author-illustrators: Please note the menu options: Middle Grade for middle grade graphic novel and hybrid pitches; Graphic PBs for comic-style picture books; and Early/Chapter GNs for early reader/chapter book graphic novels. Visit the section of the age category that corresponds with your pitch to find the details on how to post your pitches.

Un-agented and agented Illustrators: if you are not pitching a graphic novel project, go the “Illustration Station” tab for details on how to post.

Agented authors/author-illustrators: Use the “Agented Pitches” page to post your pitches only if your agent isn’t planning to pitch your GN or has given you the green light to shop it around. Agented illustrators, you may post in the Agented Illustrator section located under Illustration Station.

Editors and Agents: Your page is under the “Web Pitch Event” tab and includes information on how to post your submission guidelines and on how to “favorite” a website pitch that you’re interested in.
