No, not our August M.A. contest (although I will say you should get your pitches polished for August 1st *grins*), but the WriteOnCon gang are doing this:
WriteOnCon has teamed up with TheReadingRoom.com to bring you a VERY special contest to kick off the 2011 Conference.
A first 500 MG/YA words contest. Grand Prize is $1000 AND a chance to have your work considered for representation from literary agent, Catherine Drayton. I AM NOT KIDDING.
When? Contest opens today, and submissions close August 18th. Winner will be announced Thursday, September 8th during a special LIVE WriteOnCon Chat.
So here's how it works.
1. Starting today, email the first 500 words of your completed MG/YA manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. After the conference, a team of individuals will vote on all entries and narrow the submissions down to the TOP 5.
3. The TOP 5 submissions will be posted on TheReadingRoom.com where EVERYONE can vote.
4. Requirements? You must be a member of The Reading Room to enter. Click here to take care of that.
The grand prize winner will receive $1000 cold, hard cash
What are you waiting for? Head on over now. I'll race you.
