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.

I scrolled to the bottom. There’s no where to donate with a credit card. Whether I ever get a mentor or not I support #pitchwars! Can someone send me a link? It’s just book enteries at the bottom.
Hi Tammy! You have to first click on the donate button and then go to the bottom to use a credit card. Thank you for the support!
If we donate, do you automatically add us to the pool for the extra two draws? I just did and – I mean, it wasn’t much – but I’m super excited for some of these prizes – so yeah, I know, I’m a bad person.
Everyone who enters Pitch Wars gets an entry, and everyone who donates, gets an extra entry. Thank you for your support!!
Hi! When we donate, are we supposed to fill in the “Purpose” line with something specific (like our name, for the sake of the extra entries)? Thanks!
I mean our name in addition to writing that it’s for Pitch Wars.. x)
You don’t need to fill that in unless the name you’re submitting your work with is different. Thank you for your support!
Okay, thank you! 🙂
