I have never actually participated in a pitch event before as a writer, but I have helped host two of these events.
I have read the feed and added in encouraging comments and reminders about the event rules.
I know which pitches catch my attention and which ones I have to read twice to understand, but that doesn't mean I can create one.
In a recent e-mail thread between IWSG Admins, one of the other Admins stated this basic plan for pitches:
Can you get these into a twitter-length pitch?
I think you can. I hope I can.
In the comment section, please feel welcome to leave your pitch and to comment on one another's pitches. Let's be encouraging but also helpful. Can we help each other hone our pitches?
I have one that I'm trying out. I'm pretty sure that even thought it fits the twitter box for length, it's too wordy. Help would be appreciated! (Big question: do I mention my working title?) (Another question: do I add more space between the sentences?)
Dunnie hopes for redemption and friendship when he uses his super-power in school, instead his display brings dark forces to his family's doorstep.
Can Dunnie and his new friends work together to rescue his family and their community?
