Guess what, peeps! The end of Pitch Wars 2016 is almost here, and you know what that means, right? The AGENT SHOWCASE!!!
What’s Pitch Wars? It’s a contest where agented and/or published authors and/or freelance editors mentor a writer for two months. At the end, there’s an agent showcase, where the writer’s pitch and first page are posted on Brenda Drake’s blog. Agents who are accepted into the showcase round will browse the pitches and make requests as they go. You can see who’s participating this year by going here: http://www.brenda-drake.com/2016/07/meet-pitch-wars-2016-agents/ and here: http://www.brenda-drake.com/2016/07/meet-pitch-wars-2016-agents-part-2/.
Usually, all the pitches are posted the same day, but this time, Brenda is trying something new. The agent showcase runs November 3—9. Here’s the schedule:
-November 3: Adult and New Adult entries go up on her blog
-November 4: MG entries go up
-November 5: YA entries go up
-November 9: Last day of Agent Showcase
Last year, I mentored in the adult category. This year, I teamed up with Destiny Cole to mentor in the young adult category. Our mentee is Meghan Jashinsky with COURT OF GLIMMERING CRIMSON. We’re really excited about her entry. It’s THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER meets THE YOUNG ELITES. Cool beans, right?
Let’s get the party started!
