Anyone can enter as long as your novel falls under the genres our MA is looking for. If this particular MA doesn't rep your genre, no worries -- we hold these contests often and try to find agents with diverse tastes so there will be a contest in the future for your particular genre.
The contest will go live Sunday, July 1 at 10 am ET / 9 CT / 8 MT / 7 PT
Come back July 1 to enter! And good luck!
(And for those who wait, the winners of the June Mystery Agent contest will be posted soon.)
