Pitch Wars Agent Round!

Pitch Wars 2014 logo

Welcome to the Pitch Wars Agent Round!

For those unfamiliar with Pitch Wars, it’s a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or interns chose one mentee plus an alternate each and offered critiques on how to make their work shine. Over 1200 writers entered the Pitch Wars contest this year, and only 75 were chosen for the agent round.

As a special reward for waiting in the wings and working tirelessly to get their manuscripts and pitches in shape, we’ve put together a special showcase for our alternates on Dee Romito‘s blog I Write For Apples on November 6. If any agents have time, please stop by and see if there are any pitches you’d like to make requests on.

For a list of the amazing agents participating in Pitch Wars 2014, go here.

AGENTS: To make requests, simply peruse the following entries and enter what you would like to have the writers’ send you in the comments of the posts. Please include submission guidelines and/or additional instructions.

PLEASE only agent comments. All others save your comments until after the agent round. If you would like to cheer on your friends, go to the Twitter hashtag #PitchWars and show your support there. Thank you!
