Chat and Pitching Opportunities

Calling all Passionate Ink members:

We will be hosting a chat and Q&A for members on the Passionate Ink Forums with Vicki Lewis Thompson on June 4-8, 2012. To participate please log into the PI forum between the dates mentioned and go to the Guest Chat area. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any one of the Passionate Ink Board Members. We’d be happy to assist you.


The following is a confirmed list of editors and agents for our pitching schedule. Please check the forum for more detailed editor preferences and additions to the schedule.

Pitch Schedule:

Alethea Spiridon Hopson, Entangled - June 15

Christa Desir, Samhain - July 13

How it works.

The pitch will be held in the PI forum. The author must have their pitch forwarded to pitch@passionateink.org the day before the pitch. The pitch forum will be open only for members that are pitching. The editor will have access to post comments, accept or reject a submission or ask for author contact.
Only the pitching member will have access to the pitch forum and only for the duration of the pitch. Once the pitches are completed the forum will be deleted so please ensure you copy the comments made about your pitch.

Each writer is to prepare and submit the following:
Email – will remain anonymous, for administrative use only
Word count of manuscript
A 300 word pitch
It is expected that the manuscript is complete and not a work in progress

Each editor may have specific requests and if so, they will be posted under General Business Discussion with an appropriate heading.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. cristal@passionateink.org
