Pitch Contest at YAtopia!

Mar 19, 2011 Uncategorized 2 comments

I wanted to pass on the info! Here’s what they posted at YAtopia:

Super agent Ammi-Joan Paquette has so kindly offered to host a pitch contest on YAtopia. And seeing as she’s currently closed to submissions, this is an opportunity you simply CANNOT miss out on.

It’s really quite simple what you have to do. Ready?

1) Be a follower of the blog. Nice and easy.

2) Blog about this contest and include a link with your entry. If you don’t have a blog, you may tweet or make a facebook status.

3) Create a TWO SENTENCE pitch. And not a massively long run-on sentence either. Two concise sentences that will hook Joan to your book and have her desperate to read more.

4) Include the opening line of your manuscript.

5) Manuscripts that you submit should be completed. I leave it up to you whether you decide to submit a half finished manuscript. You’ll have to deal with it SHOULD Joan request you send her the full.

6) This contest will be capped at either 150 entries OR will end midnight on the 24th March.

7) Winners to be announced (along with prizes) on 31st March.

8) Only childrens and young adult categories will be accepted.

Again, if you’re at that point, click here to head on over to their site and check it out! Best of luck!
