Who we are

#SmoochPit is a Twitter event created to showcase pitches from unagented romance authors. This year will be the first of many, and we hope to make a romantic movement for the future. Four romance authors: Christine, a Nigerian-American, created and moderated the event; Busayo, a Nigerian-Brit; Vanessa, a Ghanaian-Brit, and Amy Barber came together and created an avenue for lovers of romance.

At SmoochPit, we also run a mentoring program where published/agented authors choose one writer each to mentor. Mentors will review the selected candidate's manuscript and help polish it for our major pitch event. 

Meet the Smoochie Team
