It’s that time again! I’m excited to bring you the Pitch Wars Mentor Critique Workshop featuring some of our talented current and past mentors! The mentors will be giving away query and first page critique packages to some lucky winners of our drawing. That means each winner will have both their query and first page critiqued.
So far we have 32 critique packages to giveaway, but we just announced mentors and they are still signing up to donate critiques so we may have more by the time we end the drawing.
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 18 at 10AM Time change due to unforeseen events. We hope to have winners announced by tomorrow, August 19, AM. (the drawing will close August 17 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.
All you have to do is to enter this rafflecopter. One entry per person.
And here are the winners of the drawing. Congratulations!
Winners will receive an instruction email in the next 24-48 hours from the Pitch Wars blog gmail account. Please check your spam if you don’t receive one. Have your query and first page (250 words – If it ends in the middle of a sentence, go to the end of the sentence.) to send. You have 48 hours to get it in. Only because we have to send them to the mentors and get them back to those of you who are entering Pitch Wars.

I also seem to have entered 4 times, and yet I’m not sure if you received my entry. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong.
We have yours, Barb, and everything looks okay. You were supposed to have 4 entries. One for each question you answered. 🙂
Just so I’m clear, is the first page the first 250 words (approx)?
Yes, the first page is the first 250 (approx – not too much over – just stop at a good place) words of your manuscript. 🙂
I hope I entered properly…I filled out all the blanks but now it says I’ve entered four times.
Each entry (Name, email, category, genre) gives you one entry, so you should have 4 entries. You are good! 🙂
Agree – I was confused by the notification of “4 entries” too.
What if you accidently put the wrong genre?
Afisha, I can delete it and you can enter again.
I am so excited to be one of the winners! Thank you, Brenda, and all the Pitch Wars team.
