Contest with Literary Agent Chris Richman Now Open

The contest with Chris Richman of Upstart Crow Literary is now open.

DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR PITCH TO MR. RICHMAN'S REGULAR EMAIL ADDRESS. Your entry will be deleted if you do. Directions on where to submit are below.

Mr. Richman is accepting entries (a 25-word-or-less pitch) in the Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction genres. The contest will remain open until 6:00 a.m. EST on April 28th. There is no cap on entries.

To enter, you must be a follower of the QueryTracker blog (widget at right.) You will also need a free membership on QueryTracker.net to access the submission form. (I promise it's a membership you will not regret. There's not an easier way to find agents and track queries.)

You can find the submission form here. (Only one entry per person, please.)

For articles on how to craft a strong pitch, click the Contest Linky (with the colored pencils) to the right of this post, or click on this link.

Best of luck! Let me know if you have any questions. =)

Suzette Saxton writes books for tots, teens, and in-betweens. She is represented by Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary.

When I click the link for the contest form, the following sentence appears at the bottom of the page: Sorry, entries for this contest will not be accepted until April 27th starting at 6 a.m. Eastern Time. Contest will close April 28th at 6 a.m.
Thanks for your help!

Sorry- that was my fault. The server is in the Central Time Zone, and I forgot to make the adjustment.
