Have you heard of pitch wars?
Well, it's my first time entering the online battle. Writers submit their finished manuscript's first chapter and a query letter to four participating agents / writers / publishers / editors. If selected, the writer would then work with said professional to buff up their manuscript for two months in anticipation of November's Twitter pitch war, where writers pitch their novel through Twitter and agents and editors are on the prowl for new projects.
Last year, more than 50 author participants were offered representation / publication!
So I figured, why not!
I brushed up my young adult nanowrimo project from a few years back and sent it off.
Thinking of sending something in? There's still time! The window for mentors closes tomorrow, August 6th, but if you miss that, you can always jump right back in in November.
