PitchWars Logo

We have some amazing giveaways!

But first, check out the new logo for Pitch Wars created by Isabel Ibañez Davis. If you want to get a t-shirt or coffee mug with the logo on it, you can get it here: https://writerslifeapparel.com/collections/pitch-wars, and 30% of the profit goes to Pitch Wars. After the mentees are chosen, there will be more items added for them. So exciting!

Pitch Wars is accepting donations to help with the administrative costs (see this post here) required to run the contest. Everyone who enters Pitch Wars can submit four (4) free applications to the mentors of their choice. Those who donate $20 or more will receive two additional applications.* To claim your extra mentor applications, please keep your emailed receipt from Paypal as proof when uploading your entry during the submission window on August 3.

*Please note: Pitch Wars is a contest where mentors choose mentees based on the entrants’ skills and is not based on chance.

To help with our donation campaign, some of our mentors who have editing and other services are offering prizes for our giveaway. Everyone who enters Pitch Wars, will get an entry into the drawing. If you donate to Pitch Wars, you’ll receive two extra entries into the drawing. All amounts are greatly appreciated. If you’re not entering Pitch Wars this year and the contest has benefited you in the past, please consider donating.
