Agent Judged Contest on the QueryTracker Blog!
Our next contest will be on October 27th and will be for writers of children's projects only, including middle grade and young adult fiction as well as work for younger readers down to picture books. Agent Joan Paquette from the Erin Murphy Literary Agency has agreed to be our next judge. This is a great opportunity to get your work in front of Ms. Paquette because she does not accept queries outside of referrals or personal contact (conferences). Details on the contest can be found here.
