September Three-Two-One Pitch Contest Details

Attention writers! Once again we'll be giving aspiring writers everywhere a chance at pitching to a literary agent. The next Three-Two-One pitch contest takes place September 21st and 22nd. Just a reminder to those who haven't participated before, a Three-Two-One pitch contest goes like this:

THREE - Pitch your story in only three sentences.

TWO - Two days to enter: September 21st and 22nd.

ONE - One agent will judge and pick a winner.

Doesn't that sound great? Well then get those pitches ready!

Do not enter your pitch on this post. I will make an official contest entry post on September 21st, and entrants will post their three-sentence pitches (no run on sentences!) in the comments section of that post. At midnight on September 22nd, I will turn off comments and no other entries will be accepted. The winner will get a full manuscript request!

I will announce our spectacular judging agent sometime prior to the contest, so keep an eye out!

This contest is open to unagented, completed and polished manuscripts in the genres of:


  • YA
  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction


To be eligible, you must:


  • Follow this blog - go ahead and click "Join this Site" on the right if you haven't already
  • Follow me on Twitter
  • Spread the word! Tweet, Blog, or mention on Facebook about the contest linking back to this post


Not necessary, but in the spirit of paying it forward:




So, don't forget: Three sentences, two days to enter, one agent will judge. Good luck, everyone. Can't wait to read all your pitches. See you back here on the 21st of September!

I always love these contests. That way you can find out about agents you might not already know about, and find out what their likes are based on what they pick and don't pick.

I think they're a lot of fun, and it's so interesting to see what catches an agents eye.

Good luck if you enter!
