Haunted Writing Clinic Battle for Minions
Hello there, sweet minions. The time has come for you to be sorted into houses based on your unique evil characteristics. Because the super villains want to screw with your mind and make you paranoid, we'll be having a secret draft to pick minions. We won't ever tell you who was picked first and last, so you'll just have to obsess about it forever. However, you can feel good knowing that your super villain chose you at some point. :)
To make it easy for the super villains to pass judgement upon you, please post your polished query and first page again between now and Wednesday. If you're new to the contest, or for whatever reason haven't posted yet, you MUST post your query and first page before Wednesday if you would like a minion to mentor you.
We'll announce the teams on 10/24.
After minions are selected, your super villain will provide more detailed critique of your submission package offline and will be available to answer questions you have about writing, submissions, or publishing.
If you want your submission to be considered by the criminal mastermind judges, you'll need to email them to me by the witching hour on All Hallows' Eve (midnight CST the night of 10/31). I'll post closer to that date with more detailed instructions.
The team whose minions get the most requests will win bragging rights as villain supreme.
