Our agent-judged one-line pitch contest began today, Thursday, March 3rd at 9:00 am Eastern Standard Time. Agent Weronika Janczuk from the D4EO Literary Agency is judging the contest.
The contest entry window is 24 hours and will end at 9:00 am Eastern Standard Time on Friday, March 4th.
You may only enter one project. Please be certain all projects are complete, edited, and polished enough to present to an agent.
Submissions must be made via our online submission form. (A free QueryTracker.net membership is necessary to use the form and can be accessed from the form page.) Only entries received through the online form will be accepted. Entries emailed directly to the agent or agency will be disqualified.
Ms. Janczuk wants to receive one-line pitches and the first 100 words of your manuscript (+ or – half a sentence. Don’t just end mid-sentence).
Details for this contest were posted yesterday and have been in the contest widget in the sidebar for several days.
The response time and announcement of the winners (who will receive requests for additional material from Ms. Janczuk) will depend on the number of entries. The more entires, the longer it will take--one of the pitfalls of not having an entry cut-off. Ms. Janczuk hopes to have the results within two weeks. I'll give updates as to her progress and the winners will be notified directly via email as well.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them in comments!
Best of luck to everyone and special thanks to Ms. Janczuk for judging.
