It’s that time of year again. School? Almost (sadly) but not quite yet.

90% off everything at Off Broadway Shoes? I wish. 😐

No, for all you budding young writers out there, it’s time for Brenda Drake’s Pitch Wars 2016!

What’s that, you ask?

It’s an annual contest where professional authors, editors, or interns each select one unagented author to mentor. They offer critiques and advice on how to polish the author’s manuscript, pitch, and query letter.

Applications may be submitted from August 3 – August 6, so if you happen to have an unpublished middle grade, young adult, new adult, or adult manuscript lying around and you’re an author looking for an agent, what are you waiting for?!

But don’t fret if your manuscript isn’t ready for this year’s Pitch Wars because you still have an opportunity to participate in Brenda’s #PitMad Twitter Pitch Party on September 8th and again on December 1st! Yay! 🙂

Good luck and happy writing!
