I know I highlighted some great contests the other day, but here is another one for you if you write Young Adult and Middle Grade.
And here are the details straight from the QueryTracker.blog.
Agent Kathleen Ortiz of Lowenstein Associates will be judging the next contest.
When?: Tuesday June 1, 2010 at 9:00 PM EST.
How many?: 100 entries will be accepted.
Genres?: Young Adult and Middle Grade.
Rules?: You must be a follower of the QueryTracker blog.
To enter all you need to do is have free QueryTracker membership. Submit a one-sentence pitch and your first chapter
The awesome Suzette Saxton warns that this contest is not for whiners! It's only open to those who are willing to receive honest feedback. Ms. Ortiz will:
"Treat every entry as a partial submission (therefore you must only enter if you, in Ms. Ortiz's words "for the LOVE OF GODIVA," have a completed MS).
Read every entry TO THE POINT SHE WOULD NORMALLY STOP READING on a partial submission.
She will tell you why she stopped reading.
She will request more of the manuscript only if it is something she would normally request."
So how cool is that? If you are one of the 100 entries you are going to get feedback on your first chapter.
If you are interested, don't forget to check it out.
Happy Friday everyone. :)
