I entered Pitch Wars three times, with three different manuscripts. I've watched this contest become huge, maybe even the hottest thing in the writing contest world. It's an amazing way to make connections with other writers, find a mentor, and have your work seen by agents.
I love this contest, and think every writer (with a completed manuscript, ahem ahem) should give it a shot. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
So for this Tuesday Museday, I'd like to offer last-minute query letter critiques to five people who plan to enter Pitch Wars. I promise to have your critique back to you before the end of the submission window (10pm EDT on Sunday). The first five commenters on this post will receive a critique. Remember to check for replies to your post so you know how to submit your query!
And because I know from experience how heartbreaking it can be not to get into Pitch Wars...
This is me, signing my agency contract. I found my agent through regular ole querying. Pitch Wars is amazing, but it doesn't have to be the end-all-be-all.
