The Writer’s Voice Blogfest is live!

The Writer's Voice

#TheWVoice Blogfest is live! Over the next two weeks, the coaches will review your queries and first pages on the blogs listed below, and if one of the coaches wants you on her team, she’ll leave a comment on your post that says something like, “I want you!” (Please note that the coaches won’t post any comments until Monday, June 1, so don’t fret when you don’t get an instant “I want you!”) If more than one coach wants you, you’ll have to pick which coach you want to work with. (We’ll give you more instructions on this next week, depending on how things pan out…)

For more information, including a timeline of events and a list of this year’s participating agents, check out this post. In the meantime, feel free to hop around and play along with these not-quite-blind auditions!


Brenda, Kimberly Chase and I (Nikki Roberti) will be joining forces as a coaching team and are so excited to read your manuscripts!

    • No, five writers didn’t post to the linky before the cut-off time. So sad those spots went unused. ;(
