So You Think You Can Write 2015 is back and in full swing. This year they are partnered with Wattpad. You have to register with Wattpad to submit your story. The neat thing about the process this year is that you submit one chapter at a time. The complete manuscript to be submitted in full by September 21, 2015. Promotion of your chapters is essential as you have fellow followers checking out your story and giving feedback/encouragement. Make sure the manuscript is complete. The first chapter and pitch are what the judges check out during the first round.
Good luck to all who enter! Here’s the link:
Introducing the Harlequin Romance Christmas Challenge! This announcement is from The Chocolate Box for Romance Writers blog at www.chocolateboxwriters.com
Head on over to the blog and scroll down to the November 24 post by Barb Wallace. All the details are after her interview questions with Mills and Boon editor Flo Nicoll.
I might just give this one a try!
#RT Slap – another Twitter pitch contest for Young Adult (YA) and Adult (A) romances. You can pitch 140 characters *only* of a complete and polished manuscript. The contests ends at 8 pm EST. Good luck!
Well, I didn’t advance to the agent stage in #Pitch Slam, but I learned so much about my 35 word pitch and my first 250 words. I would like to make a big shout out to the creators, bloggers, editors and agents who all made #Pitch Slam such a great success. I can’t wait until next time.
The next contest #RT Slap is open to YA (young adult), NA (new adult) and A (adult) romance. No info on word count for the pitch but I will keep everyone posted. The contest is on Monday, May 5, 2014 8 am EST to 8 pm EST.
Be brave and submit. It’s so much fun.
Remember the writing world is very subjective. If you aren’t selected to advance, it doesn’t mean that you’re a terrible writer and should stop writing forever. It means your story didn’t click for that particular agent/editor on that specific day. So keep trying. Someone out there will LOVE what you wrote — you just need to get your work out there and never stop trying.
Pitch Slam is a contest on Twitter. It’s the first contest I’ve been in where you get the opportunity to receive feedback, revise and resubmit. The results go up tomorrow. Check it out and wish me luck! 🙂
Get your 35 word pitch and the first 300 words of a completed manuscript ready. Submissions started at noon and will go until noon tomorrow or 9 am to 9 am EST.
You will find all the information on Twitter and be redirected to the submission rules and guidelines.
Good luck everyone!
As promised, here is the link to my first chapter for the So You Think You Can Write 2013 contest.
Please head on over, read and enjoy at your leisure, and leave a comment.
Thanks so much everyone! Have a great day!
Hi everybody! Long time no post! So You Think You Can Write 2013 aka SYTYCW 2013. Today is the first day for writers to submit their first chapter and 100 word pitch to this Harlequin/Mills & Boon contest. The catch – you have to target one of their lines. See the www.soyouthinkyoucanwrite.com for details. I will be submitting my first chapter aimed at the Harelquin Presents line. I will be posting the direct link to my chapter on here tonight or tomorrow.
The contest is a bit different then last year being that the editors choose the top 50 chapters and then request full manuscripts. From there the editors choose the top 10 manuscripts and then the public (that’s you) get to vote on those top 10 manuscripts. Voting doesn’t start until November.
Right now you can go on the SYTYCW website and read the submitted chapters and make comments to the writer. I am hoping there will be no negativity to any of the brave writers who post their work for the world to see. It takes guts to do that, trust me.
Enjoy the variety of reads and I hope you enjoy my chapter. I will be submitting either tonight or tomorrow and will post the direct link for easy access.
Thanks everyone! Happy reading!
