Contest Schedule … yep, I’m getting organized!

CONTEST SCHEDULE In an effort to relieve contest fatigue for agents, plus with my future editing schedule and book release ahead for me, I’m making some changes to my contests. There won’t be a Pitch Madness this September. Instead, I’m moving Pitch Wars into its spot and adding more mentors.  Pitch Madness will be held every year in March. And there will be a quarterly #PitMad throughout the year. And hopefully, I’ll be less crazy.     So here’s the schedule for the upcoming year…   2014   August 4: Pitch Wars Mentor Bio Blog Hop August 18: Writers submit applications to mentors for Pitch Wars August 18  – September 2: Pitch Wars mentors review applications and choose a writer to mentor (along with one alternate). September 3: Pitch War mentees are announced. September 3 – October 31: Mentors work with their team. September 9: #PitMad Twitter Pitch Party 8AM – 8PM EDT November 4 – 5:  Agent round for Pitch Wars November 10-14: Pitch Event with Entangled Publishing December 4: #PitMad Twitter Pitch Party 8AM – 8PM EST   2015   February 23: Pitch Madness submission window opens February 20  – March 1: Pitch Madness Slush Readers sort the entries March 2: Pitch Madness Draft – Hosts pick their top entries March 3 – 4: Agent Round March 11: #PitMad Twitter Pitch Party 8AM – 8PM EDT June 4: #PitMad Twitter Pitch Party 8AM – 8PM EDT August 17: Writers submit applications to mentors for Pitch Wars August 17  –  September 1: Pitch Wars mentors review applications and choose a writer to mentor (along with one alternate).
