Pitch Wars 2019 Mentor Blog Hop!

Wednesday, 11 September 2019  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

 

Welcome to the mentors’ wishlist blog hop! From today until submission day, use the linkies below to hop to all the mentors’ websites/blogs to read their bios, wishlists, and what categories and genres they want to mentor.

For those unfamiliar with Pitch Wars, it’s a mentoring program where published/agented authors, editors, or interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer suggestions on how to make the manuscript shine. The mentee then revises their manuscript for three months under the guidance of their mentor. The mentor also critiques his/her writer’s pitch and query letter to get it ready for the agent showcase in February. You can find our schedule in the footer of this site.

Find out more about Pitch Wars here: http://pitchwars.org/new-start-here/

Need to connect to the community? Join the Pitch Wars forum to have discussions with some of our mentors and other writers or get your worked critiqued by your peers and sometimes mentors or search for critique partners. It’s our gift to you for being so awesome, and we hope you find this space useful. To join the forum go here: http://pitchwars.proboards.com/

Mark your calendars for our official chats on Twitter and live video chats. Follow @PitchWars on Twitter for all the details.

 

And here are your 2019 mentors…

Please be respectful to our mentors. Only ask brief questions on their sites and on social media and do not ask for feedback or for them to go to links to read stuff. And remember, Pitch Wars has an Anti-bullying Policy.
