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.

    Super excited for this. I signed up a week ago and submitted my receipt. Should I have received a confirmation email? Or instructions on how to join?

    Thank you,

    Hello! I’m attempting to sign up, but the Donate button links directly to PayPal without the contact info to whom I should make the payment (phone number, email address, etc). And, since it took me straight to PayPal, I couldn’t access the credit card payment option either. The short of it: I can’t make the payment! If possible, could you please send me the necessary info? Thank you!

    Greetings! I’ve registered and will not be able to attend live. Will the session be recorded?
