Contests GALORE!!

This post's title pretty much says it all. Today I'll be talking about... you guessed it... CONTESTS!


If you have a completed and uber-polished manuscript, here are three contests you should check out:

Operation Awesome's October Mystery Agent Contest

On Saturday, October 1st, another awesome Mystery Agent will be open to your one-line pitches! The official rules, as well as our Mystery Agent's preferred genres, will be available this Saturday, so mark your calendars!

Note: For those of you who entered our September Mystery Agent Contest, the results will be in very soon! Check back to see if you won a full manuscript request!

Krista V's Agent Inbox Contest

Krista over at Mother. Write. Repeat. is throwing another one of her epic Agent Inbox contests! You can submit your query and first 250 words, which will be read by an agent. This contest is only open to YA and MG submissions, though. For more official rules, check out Krista's post here.

Reel YA's One-Line Pitch Critique Contest

This is Reel YA's first contest, and it's all about the one-line pitch. Two (uber-fabulous) agents will critique two one-line pitches, and they'll share their feedback on the blog! This contest is open to all the genres the two agents represent, which can be found on the contest post. For more official rules, click here

Now tell me: did I miss a contest?? If so, please let me know in the comments! And best of luck to those of you who enter these contests!!
