To help with our donation campaign for Pitch Wars, 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. Details on this post here.

Your donations will help move Pitch Wars to a new exiting site on pitchwars.org. The site will focus on community and craft, and of course, our big contest in August. There will be so many amazing things on this new site, I can’t wait to share all the details with you. We’ll launch it in 2017! And look for upcoming information about Pitch Wars writing retreats coming soon!

Go check out the wonderful services offered by our Pitch Wars mentor professionals on their sites. And here are the mentors’ items that will be in the drawing.

Enter by August 24th at 5pm EDT, and winners will be announced in a post on August 26th!
