Brenda Drake’s famous Pitch Wars is just around the corner. What do you mean you’ve never heard of it? This is an amazing contest. Agented and/or published authors, freelance editors like myself, and industry interns each mentor ONE writer. That’s right. We’ll each help one lucky writer revise his/her manuscript and pitch in preparation for the agent pitch session.
When the time comes, and Brenda Drake opens the doors (Psst . . . That’s August 17, 2015), writers can submit their query letter and first chapter of their manuscript to FOUR mentors. We’ll go through our submissions pile, similar to what agents do when combing through their slush piles, and decide which writer we would like to mentor for the next two months.
Cool beans, right?
So, get your manuscript and query letter ready. August is just around the corner. More details to come.
In the meantime, if your manuscript needs a little TLC, let me know. My next available developmental/substantive editing slot is July 10. Book it now.
