The BIG Pitch Wars mentor critique giveaway!

Monday, 6 August 2018  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

When we had to cancel the Pitch Wars query and first page workshops this year, I was sad.  So I asked our 2018 and past mentors if they’d be up to doing a critique giveaway in its place. Many jumped in, and I’m thrilled to announce our 2018 Pitch Wars Mentor Critique Giveaway. All you have to do to enter is fill out the following form. Scroll down to see what mentors are participating and what they’re offering.

The window to enter the giveaway is now and until August 10 at 9AM EST.  Once I pull names, I’ll email the winners. You’ll have 24 hours to send in your critique. Mentors will return the critiques to you by August 22. If there is time, I might post a few of the critiques to the blog so everyone can learn from them. There will be a spot where you can choose whether you want yours posted or not. No names, titles, or other personal information will be included in the posts.

That’s not all! To show my appreciation to our wonderful mentors, I’m giving away a mentor book to five lucky winners. This giveaway is open to everyone. All you have to do is search each mentor and pick one of their books you’d like to read. It can be in any format (hardcover, paperback, or eBook) and it can also be a pre-order book. Then come back here and enter the book you’ve chosen into the following Rafflecopter.
