Website Pitch Rules and Info

NOTE: The comments sections for the age categories will remain off until the pitches are allowed, but will remain inaccessible to public viewing until the start of the pitch event.

KidLitGN hosts an annual pitch event the first Wednesday 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 5, 2022 for un-agented authors/author-illustrators (see here for details).

Our corresponding website event, starts October 5, 2022 and agents and editors can view pitches until October 7. You can begin adding your website pitches starting at 8 a.m. Oct. 2 until 11:59 October 4. Any entry after that time will be deleted.

The website event includes space for un-agented and agented GN creators and un-agented and agented illustrators  who are pitching their portfolio instead of a project.

For information on how to load your pitch, see our How to Load A Pitch page. 

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 illustrators: If you are not pitching a graphic novel project, go the the un-agented illustrator’s section for details on how to post.

Agented authors/author-illustrators: Use the Agented section to post your pitches based on age category (GPBs. Early GNs, or MG GNs) Agented illustrators, you may post in the Agented Illustrator section located under Illustration Station.

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