Pitch Wars



This page is the place to find all the Pitch Wars related posts from my blog in one convenient spot!

But first...what is Pitch Wars?

Pitch Wars is a contest in which writers submit a query and the first chapter of their completed book in the hopes of snagging a spot with a mentor in a two-month process that culminates in an agent round. You can find out more on creator Brenda Drake's website.

I'm so excited to once again be a middle grade mentor for Pitch Wars 2017! If you're planning to submit a middle grade novel, be sure to check out my recent first page critique for a peek at my editing style, and stay tuned for my 2017 manuscript wishlist!
