About Pitch Wars Webinars . . .

The Pitch Wars webinar series was developed to help writers at every stage of their careers. Mentors and industry experts will host webinars focused on pitching, publishing, developing craft, and more.

Pitch Wars is a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors work with their mentees for two months before an agent round. Learn more.

    I would like to attend this webinar, but I am having no luck. There is no Donate button on this page. I had to set up a Pay Pal account, unlike the webinar notification says, and when I do get to pay Pal, I have no idea how to pay for this because it does not take me to the pay screen like other webinars I have purchased from this and other companies. Pretty frustrated!

    • Jackie says:

      @Lu Ross, I had to refresh the page, myself, in order to see the Donate button. It’s a yellow oval in the middle of the page, appearing before Dr. Stender’s bio. Once you click on it (if it’s Paypal), it takes you directly to a Paypal page with Brenda’s name already set up in the fields. You just enter $25 as the amount, then upload a screenshot of your receipt.

      Hope that helps!
