Please type Pitch Slam: TITLE  into the subject line for each round.

***Any entries received before or after the submission times will be deleted unread.***



And you can see participating agents here (WAY, WAY, WAY at the bottom):  http://tangynt.wordp...ure-the-agents/


Unlike like some of the other Twit-slams, no pitching directly to the agents via Twitter through #PitchSlam.  


You're submission gets viewed, critiqued, and refined by other writers -- a.k.a. Captains (which includes AQC veteran members @Michelle4Laughs) -- for a chance to make the cut and get passed onto the participating agents.
