CONTEST SCHEDULE

In an effort to relieve contest fatigue for agents, plus with my future editing schedule and book release ahead for me, I’m making some changes to my contests. There won’t be a Pitch Madness this September. Instead, I’m moving Pitch Wars into its spot and adding more mentors.  Pitch Madness will be held every year in March. And there will be a quarterly #PitMad throughout the year. And hopefully, I’ll be less crazy.
