YAtopia and Down Under Wonderings blogs have gotten together and arranged the fantastic GET YOUR PITCH ON. which provides the writers of YA fictions with an opportunity to avoid the slush pile. The only thing you need to do is put together a compelling 50-70 words pitch of your polished manuscript and sign up to participate.

Here's the rules:

  • Your manuscript must be complete, polished and ready to query - this means no first drafts or almost finished manuscripts.
  • It must be YA.
  • When the contest goes live on October 15th, post your entry details in the comments section of either YAtopia or Down Under Wonderings - each blog is accepting 100 entries only.
  • Your entry detail needs to include a 50 - 70 word pitch.
  • You can enter more than once if you have more than one complete, polished, ready to query manuscript.
Just as it's important to get someone else to look over your manuscript before you query, it's a good idea to get feedback on your pitch before you post. We have about twenty blogs who are ready to help you hone your pitch. These workshops start on October 1.

I'm one of the several blogs who will be helping host this fantastic opportunity.

If you need more information, you can find it here!

Do you want to help host? You can sign up here!

LOTS OF ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WILL BE COMING AT YOU ON 9/24 so you want to take a minute and bookmark both Down Under Wonderings and YAtopia and make sure you don't get left out of the loop. You'll be glad you did!
