Hey, y'all! If you write YA or MG like I do, here's your chance to pitch to two agents and an editor starting tomorrow and running through this weekend!
Head over to YALitChat and sign up. All you have to do is be a member (which is free at the first level) and post your 1-5 line pitch in the forum. Agents will be perusing the posts next week and leaving comments. If you're selected, you will win a full professional critique of your story. How cool is that??
YALitChat is a great place for YA/MG writers to connect and there are soooo many benefits. I'm one of the moderators over there and I post news articles on the blog there. If you need to brush up on how to pitch, check out the articles I've posted here and here.
Just to mention one of the many benefits of becoming a Tier 2 member, you can take part in the Agent Mailbox Submissions. There are currently 21 agents and editors at the Agent Mailbox panel and not only do you get a preferred submission (over the slush) by using the Mailbox, founder and freelance editor, Georgia McBride will critique your query and first 500 words before submitting .... for free.
So far, I've had 3 partials and 1 full request through Agent Mailbox.
Come join the fun and become a part of this awesome writing community.
I'll be posting my pitch there tomorrow. See you there!
