More contests! Yay for blogs and their many opportunities. :)
Agent Inbox Contest: Opens 7/25 at 10am EST! I entered the inaugural Agent Inbox Contest and loved it. The participants submit queries and Krista posts them on her blog. A mysterious agent says exactly what she thinks about them and rejects or requests. It's like a window into an agent's mind. Enter fast, it's first come first serve! Open to YA & Adult, limited genres.
Gearin' Up To Get An Agent Blog-o-Rama (GUTGAA): Open now, deadline 7/26 3pm EST. Week four of this awesome Blog-o-Rama features a first 200 word contest judged by agent Kathleen Rushall! You can win critique from Kathleen and everyone wins helpful critique from other participants. :) All genres can participate in the critique portion but only YA and MG can enter the official contest.
Pitch Contest with Victoria Marini: Open now, deadline 7/29 midnight GMT (which I think is 8pm EST) or first 150 entries. Two sentence pitch + first sentence. You can win a full or partial request critique...or representation by agent Victoria Marini. All genres.
WriteOnCon + Reading Room + $1000: Open now, deadline 8/18. My guess is you've heard of this one already. A contest that offers $1000 to the winner is hard to keep quiet! Submit your 1st 500 words. Grand Prize is $1000, an author profile page on TheReadingRoom.com, and your work will be considered for possible representation by literary agent, Catherine Drayton. Personally, the chance at representation is worth way more than $1000....although I wouldn't turn down the check. MG/YA only.
