Interesting buzz on Twitter.

The agents over at the BookEnds literary agency have an interesting 'pitching' contest on twitter right now. Similar to the Knight Agency's Book in a Nutshell contest and Colleen Lindsay's Query in 140 characters or less contest, Jessica and Kim at BookEnds are inviting writers to submit short "Twitches". (Tweet + Pitch = Twitch)

It is a cute idea, and includes a chance to win a three chapter MS review. If nothing else, trying to boil a pitch down to 140 characters (including @agentname) is a good exercise for creating 'elevator' pitches (as I've heard short pitches called.)

If you want to find out more, check out the rules on the BookEnds Blog. Several of the Tri Mu have already tried their hand at pitching. Good luck to everyone who enters!
