RAMP Agents and Editors

*RAMP Pitch Week featuring Agents and Editors: October 2 - October 6*

The world of romance publishing is ever-changing, and we are excited to bring you a different way to find amazing new stories and fresh voices. As a RAMP agent or editor, you will be able to review romance manuscripts that have been through a rigorous revision process in order to be made submission-ready.

During RAMP Pitch Week, agents and editors will have access to a forum where they can review mentees’ 50-word pitches and contact information. Reply with requests for more materials from any that grab your attention!
