Three Two One Pitch Contest Details!

Attention writers! If you missed out on the pitch contest I held in June with literary agent Natalie Lakosil, you're in luck, because I'm holding another pitch contest soon! It all takes place August 20th (which happens to be my birthday) and 21st. What exactly does this contest entail? Well, a Three-Two-One pitch contest goes like this:

THREE - Pitch your story in only three sentences. 

TWO - Two days to enter: August  20th and 21st.

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 August 20th, and entrants will post their three-sentence pitches (no run on sentences!) in the comments section of that post. At midnight on August 21st, 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:
  • MG
  • YA (no paranormal, urban fantasy, romance [ unless there is a superb dark, psychotic element ], or magical realism)
  • New Adult
  • Graphic Novels

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 20th of August!
