The APIpit Team is pleased to announce the program’s inaugural pitch event for Asian and/or Pacific Islander creators. On May 4, 2021, during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, un-agented writers and illustrators will have the opportunity to pitch their original work in a day-long Twitter pitch event using the hashtag #APIpit.
Writers and illustrators of Asian and/or Pacific Islander descent seeking representation for their submission-ready materials are invited to participate in the event. Agents and editors will be watching and requesting materials for pitches that catch their eye.
Representation and community are fundamental values and beliefs of APIpit’s founders, thus it is the organization’s mission to increase the visibility of, as well as eventually create mentorships and opportunities for, Asian and Pacific Islander creators.
