Pitch Wars stuff … and announcing upcoming workshop

Tuesday, 8 January 2013  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

Pitch Wars is coming at us fast. I wanted to give some reminders.

The mentors’ picks must have their three sentence pitch (50 words) and first 250 words (total word count is 300 max) to their mentors by January 16.

Alternates must have their 35 word (no more) pitch and first 250 words to the contest email brendadrakecontests@gmail.com by January 20. Make sure to format your pitch like this:

NAME: Your Name
MENTOR:Your Mentor’s full name
TITLE: The Title
GENRE: MG Fantasy
WORD COUNT: Number of words in the manuscript, rounded to the nearest thousand

PITCH: Your 35 word (max) pitch. 

The first 250 words (max) of your manuscript. No indentions. One space between paragraphs. Times New Roman 12pt. Please make sure the formatting is done correctly.


TWITTER PITCH PARTY! For those of you who didn’t make it into Pitch Wars and just for everyone, there will be a twitter pitch party on the hashtag #PitMad on January 25 from 8AM to 8PM. We’ll announce more details as the event nears. So get your twitter pitches ready and make sure to include the hashtag in your 140 character count.
Do you need help getting your love scene on? Details and sign up for a love scene workshop will be up on the blog in a few days. Come back to get details and sign up for a chance to win a spot in the workshop.
We're thrilled at the different ways those in our Pitch Wars community are giving back—and we encourage them to do so. However, please keep in mind that Pitch Wars is not affiliated with any of these various contests, promotions, etc., including those of our mentors and mentees. Promoting any such opportunities via our social media channels doesn't imply endorsement or affiliation. We encourage you to do your research before participating.
