Upcoming Writing Contests

The end of the year is almost here! There are a lot of agents who have closed for queries until January, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still a few opportunities to get in front of some great agents over the next several weeks.


The last round of #PitMad for 2016 will be on December 1st. Never heard of it? It’s a Twitter pitch free for all and arguably one of the more fun Twitter pitch events out there. All you need is a finished MS and 140-character pitch (including the important #pitmad hashtag). There are rules for pitching, so make sure to do your research first. All of te details can be found on Brenda Drake’s blog: www.brenda-drake.com/pitmad

#PitMad tip: Have multiple versions of your Twitter pitch ready. You’re allowed to tweet up to 3 different pitches (per project).

“Dear Lucky Agent”

The 27th edition of “Dear Lucky Agent” is going on now through November 25th. If you have a completed women’s fiction novel, then this is a great opportunity! This content is put on through the Guide to Literary Agents blog and is judged by agent Irene Goodman of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency.
