Pitch Roulette

October 13, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm PDT


What goes through an editor’s mind when they read a pitch? What turns them off, and what grabs their interest? One of our most popular salons is back with a twist: Editor-in-Chief Denne Michele Norris and Executive Director Halimah Marcus will review your anonymous pitches, submitted just for this event. They will read each pitch for the first time live on screen, sharing their immediate reactions as they go. Your pitch may even be commissioned for Electric Lit! This event is part of Electric Lit’s Fall 2021 series, presented by Mount Saint Mary’s University.

Submission instructions: You can find the link to submit in the chat, on the right hand side of the event page. (Please note, you will only see the chat if you are registered for the event.) If you are unable to find the submission portal or have questions about submitting, email editors@electricliterature.com. Please submit an essay pitch of 1 to 4 paragraphs, not to exceed a single page in 12 pt, Times New Roman font. Your pitch should be for an essay you would like to be considered for publication in Electric Literature.
