Writing Contest Alert: Pitch-A-Partner Festival and GLA “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest!

For those of you who:

  1. Have critique partners and
  2. Write middle grade or YA

check out  the Pitch-A-Partner Festival (PAPfest)! This contest is being hosted by RC Lewis, MarcyKate Connolly and Mindy McGinnis, an amazing trio of writers with whom I’ve had the privilege of swapping manuscripts.

The premise of their contest is that writers  pitch their critique partner’s project, and their team will decide whose pitching abilities are so strong that they’re interested in seeing the pitcher’s own project.

Agents participating in the PAPfest are:

Laura Bradford of Bradford Literary
Jennifer Laughran of Andrea Brown Literary
Pooja Menon of Kimberley Cameron
Adriann Ranta of Wolf Literary
Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary
Tina Wexler of ICM

The contest begins Wednesday, Jan 23 at 8 AM EST! For more details about entering and the prizes, etc, go to Mindy’s website.

And just as a reminder for those with finished manuscripts  in either science fiction or YA, you have till the end of the month to enter the Guide to Literary Agents (GLA) blog’s 13th (free!) “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest.

  1. I’m considering the Dear Lucky Agent contest. I could do either, but don’t have much luck with contests. Thanks for the info.
