#PitchDis is a Twitter pitch event for disabled authors. I created it in hopes of showcasing pitches from the disabled community, which has been historically underrepresented in the publishing industry. The event will help connect disabled authors with agents and acquiring editors, and is inspired by the Twitter pitch events #DVpit and #PitMad.
The next #PitchDis event will take place in the summer of 2022 (date to be announced by the end of 2021) between 8am and 8pm EDT. During this time, unagented disabled authors may pitch their complete, polished fiction or nonfiction projects on Twitter. Agents and editors who are interested in seeing more will "like" the pitch. The author then has the opportunity to send the requested materials to the agent or editor.
