I’m thrilled to announce the Pitch Wars Mentor Critique Workshop featuring some of our talented current and past mentors! The mentors will help some lucky winners of our drawing shine up their queries and first pages. This year, we are giving away query and first page critique packages, so each winner will have both their query and first page critiqued. (How many times can I say query, first page, and critique in one paragraph? Ha!)
So far we have 67 critique packages to giveaway and we may have more. Mentors are still signing up until the 12th.
We will try to post all the critiques on the blog, so that even those who don’t win a critique in the drawing can view and learn from them. Please only enter if you’re willing to have it posted to our site. All critiques will be anonymous – no writer names or titles of work will be listed.
This is for all genres in the middle grade, young adult, new adult, and adult categories of fiction. We do have mentors taking memoir, graphic novels, and erotica. Winners will be announced on August 17 at 10AM (the drawing will close August 16 at 11:59PM) Eastern and winners will receive an email, so be ready to submit your sample for critique immediately.You will have 48 hours from the date of your instruction email to get your query and first page package to us. If you miss the window, your critique will be given away.
What if I’m not sure I’m going to enter Pitch Wars? That’s okay! Everyone is welcomed to enter the giveaway.
