Gripped, The Sidewalk’s Regrets, Chasing Eveline, The Grave Clothes Laundress, The Heart Song, Acne, Asthma & Other Signs You Might Be Half Dragon, The Last Whisperer, Death Callers, Life Set Sail and Let Her Go

That means that Pitcharama has let 26 manuscripts be seen by a bunch of top quality independent publishers, with 55 requests made in total!
We’ll be sure to keep you posted of our success stories and let you know about future pitch competitions coming up.
A huge thank you needs to be extended to all the publishers and editors who participated in Pitcharama, as well as the wonderful authors who put themselves out there. Well done, everyone, and GOOD LUCK!
