Winners for The Teenaged Nitpick event announced!

Thursday, 20 September 2012  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

Yay! We have winners into the critique event with The Teenaged Nitpick. Winners must send the first 250 words of their young adult manuscript to brendadrakecontests@gmail.com by September 21 at 5PM EDT. If we don’t receive your entry by the allotted time, we will choose a new winner. 

If you didn’t make it, comment on the entries’ posts during the critique and you could win one of ten 250 word critiques from me. It can be ANY 250 words — your query, the first page, or a page any where in the manuscript that you want a second pair of eyes on.

Here’s how to format your submission:
