I always like a good contest. And I’m passing the info on to you, because I know you like them too.
So what does this one entail? Well, you’re going to have to take your wonderful, 60K plus manuscript and sum the whole thing up in 140 wonderful, little characters. Yep, 140 characters—just like Twitter. Thus the name “Twitter Pitch Contest.”
Michael Carr of Veritas Literary Agency has offered to read these twitter pitches. He’s looking for anything MG, YA, or Adult, and if he likes what he sees, he just may ask for your manuscript. So have your manuscript complete (though you could take the risk of not).
Here's the basics of the contest:
Starts - March 1st, 2011
Tweet about contest
Submit your 140 character pitch
Submit first 3 sentences of your manuscript.
Better hurry, though. The contest closes after 75 entries.
