30 pitches, 10 agents, 1 week…It’s Xmas in July!
Michelle Krys and Ruth Lauren Steven will be hosting a blog competition for querying writers. Each will post 15 entries to their blog. The posts will be up for a week and ten agents (myself included…) will be stopping by to make requests.
They are accepting MG and YA (all genres), and adult submissions of all genres except erotica.
To enter: You’ll need a query letter and the first 500 words of a completed manuscript.
July 9th: Submit between 6:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST. Submissions should be sent to lottiehumphries14(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk.
13th July: The 30 writers chosen will be posted on the blogs.
18th July: The chosen entries go live on our blogs for the entire week, and requests will be made by the agents.
They’re using the hashtag #XmasinJuly to talk about it. So submit and join in!
Agents include: Adriann Ranta, Julia Churchill, Stephen Barr, Vickie Motter, Judith Engracia, Becky Vinter, Melissa Sarver, Molly Jaffa, Lucy Carson and myself!
