Pitch Wars Is Coming!


Pitch Wars is back, and I'm thrilled to announce I will be a mentor again! Here's a brief description, from Brenda Drake:

Pitch Wars is a contest where 46 published/agented authors, editors, or interns choose one writer each, read their manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors also critique the writer's pitch to get it ready for the agent round. Mentors will pick two alternates each in case their writer drops out of the contest. We'll hold a special alternate showcase on some of the mentors' blogs and the mentors will critique the alternates' pitches. 

Last year I had an awesome team, and two of them have already gotten agents-- and I know the third will soon! In fact, my mentee Stephanie Garber was so successful, she's now a Pitch Wars mentor herself!

My wish list and bio will be posted on 11/20, but if you're curious you can check out my post from last year's Pitch Wars to get an idea of who I am and what I'll be looking for.

The schedule and list of mentors is up on Brenda's blog, so check it out. Submissions begin on 12/2, so get your manuscript and query ready!
