#hashtag what?

In case you’ve missed it, hashtags have become a language, so in order to get through #hashtag 101, be prepare to learn some new vocabulary.

These hashtags connect writers to writers, to readers, to editors, to publishers, to agents. Get the word out!

  • #amwriting.                                             #MSWL (manuscript wishlist)
  • #amrevising                                             #askagent
  • #amediting                                               #askeditor
  • #amreading                                              #publishing
  • #pubtip                                                      #tenqueries
  • #querytip                                                  #fictionfriday
  • #Promotip                                                 #SciFiChat
  • #Indiepub                                                 #KidLitChat

Remember to be polite and play by the rules, but rising to the top in a glutted market can be difficult.  Get involved!  If an agent gets involved, make sure you check them out.  Don’t pitch a children’s book to an agent who only works with YA Fantasy.
