Pitch Wars … the winning teams!

PitchWars Snowball

Rae and I would like to thank all the mentors, mentees, alternates, and agents for making this Pitch Wars such an awesome experience. In our opinion, all the writers are winners. The writers not only got some valuable coaching, but also a chance to meet other writers striving for the same goals … getting published. This community amazes us every day and we love seeing everyone supporting each other.

If you didn’t get any requests, your agent match just wasn’t in this contest. Please query widely and never give up. Your dream could be just around the next corner.

Here’s a reminder of what the top three writers with the most agent requests will be receiving …

Each  member of the team with the most requests will receive a $75 gift certificate for jhpr_logo_300 services. Plus each will get a $20 Amazon gift card. Here’s the details for the literary publicity certificates…
