(You don’t need a Paypal account to donate. Just go to the bottom and you can use a credit card.)

Over the past six years, Pitch Wars has changed many lives. Countless authors have been matched with agents and even gone on to book deals and successful careers. We’re approaching 250 successes this year!! But most importantly, Pitch Wars has grown the writing community to connect author with author, creating an atmosphere of camaraderie as we go through all stages of revision and publishing.

Behind the scenes, it takes a lot of work to coordinate the event each year. And as it continues to grow, so do the responsibilities required to make Pitch Wars possible.

Like last year,  we will be accepting donations to go toward the administrative costs associated with running Pitch Wars.

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 2.

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.

Please note: Mentors volunteer their time and do not get any of the donations. Donations are for administration costs. If you’d like to support the mentors, please consider buying their books.

*Please note: Pitch Wars is a contest where mentors choose mentees based on the entrants’ skills and is not based on chance. If mentors love an entry but don’t feel they’re quite the right fit, they might pass it on to another mentor.

As Pitch Wars continues to grow and evolve, so will our processes each year to make sure the contest runs as smoothly as possible for all of you–because that is what Pitch Wars is all about. We are here to support our fellow authors at every stage of the process through mentoring, workshops, and community.

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in Pitch Wars. We look forward to another successful season this year and for many more to come.
