We’re exited to announce the amazing slush readers for Pitch Madness! There’s a lot of work behind the scenes of Pitch Madness. Without these talented writers we wouldn’t be able to have such epic first and second round readings for the contest. Each one was chosen for their greatness. Make sure to follow them!
For those of you not familiar with Pitch Madness, Pitch Madness is a contest where agents compete in a game against their peers for pitches. This time the game is darts. If you haven’t been a part of a Pitch Madness challenge before please check out this post here to see how we played the last one. All the fun starts March 26 through March 28. Our slush readers pick through the pitches and pick the top 60 pitches for you to choose from. We try to get a good mix of various genres, but the writing comes first. Basically, if the submissions aren’t ready, it’s a pass.
Wait. There’s more! This time around, agents won’t only be competing for requests, but for gift cards, too! We figured that it’s a lot of work playing a game, so we decided to reward the winners as an extra incentive and bragging rights. The winning agent, grand dart master, ruler of the slush pile will receive a $50 gift card from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble (winners choice) with two runners-up receiving $25 gift cards.
And here are the Slush Zombies (because by the time they finish reading the slush, they will be zombies)…
Next week we’ll highlight the team leaders and their slush teams. And don’t forget, submissions start March 15 from 6AM EST to 12PM EST.
