Tell Us Your Story!

A.M. Heath is hosting a week of pitching events on Twitter for debut fiction writers.

During week commencing Monday 18th September, we will be hosting a series of themed pitching events on Twitter for unpublished writers looking for agent representation.

Each day will focus on a different genre of fiction, and authors are invited to tweet a pitch for their novel on the relevant day using the hashtag #TellAMH.

#TellAMH will run for five days from Monday 18th September, with themed events as follows:

  • Monday 18th September: Crime/thriller/psychological suspense
  • Tuesday 19th September: Historical fiction
  • Wednesday 20th September: Women’s fiction
  • Thursday 21st September: Children’s fiction (any age group)
  • Friday 22nd September: Wild card (any genre)

A favourite from one of our agents or their assistant invites authors to submit directly to that agent via our website.

We will select one winning pitch per genre, to be announced week commencing Monday 25th September, and winning authors will receive a short critique from us on the first 10,000 words of their novel, within a month of submission.

Please tweet no more than once per event, but if your novel straddles multiple genres you may tweet once per relevant event.
