AUGUST 2011 CONTESTS - Part III

I have three words for you...or is it one word?


I hope some of you attended the amazing free conference at http://writeoncon.com.  It was held from the 16th to the 18th and was the most concentrated source of agent critique giveaways I have ever seen.  I don't see anything that says these giveaways aren't still accepting entries, so check it out!

  1. Write on Con sounds pretty epic, and critique give aways are always really helpful. I like the pitch one too. Thanks for the heads up!
