Remember last year? The
stress excitement? The agony fun? The waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats giddiness of dreams coming true? Well, it’s here again! Well, almost – you still have two more months to get your manuscripts ready.
From Brenda Drake’s blog: “Pitch Wars is a contest where 46 published/agented authors, editors, or interns choose one writer each, read their manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors also critique the writer’s pitch to get it ready for the agent round. Mentors will pick two alternates each in case their writer drops out of the contest. We’ll hold a special alternate showcase on some of the mentors’ blogs and the mentors will critique the alternates’ pitches.”
Here’s the schedule:
- 11/20 Mentor’s post bios and wishlists
- 12/2: Submission Window
- 12/3 -12/10: Mentors read their applications
- 12/11: Mentor’s announce their picks
- 12/11 -1/17: Mentors work with their writers
- 1/22-1/23 Agent Round
I will be mentoring in YA or NA and I’m looking forward to meeting you!
