Heads up for November's Three Two One Pitch Contest

So you think you can pitch? It's time again for us to give aspiring writers everywhere a chance to pitch their manuscript. But this time it's not to a literary agent; it's to an editor at a publishing company! What an exciting opportunity, right? The next Three-Two-One pitch contest takes place November 20th and 21st. This gives you all about three weeks to get your manuscripts and pitches ready. 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: November 20th and 21st.
  • ONE - One editor 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. We will make an official contest entry post on November 20th and entrants will post their three-sentence pitches (no run on sentences!) in the comments section of that post. At midnight on November 21st, We will turn off comments and no other entries will be accepted. 

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

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

Speculative* Middle Grade
Speculative* Young Adult
