#midgrademadness... Round one results!


Surprises and love are not just for February!

Literary Agent, Terrie Wolf, and I are having so much fun we decided to share a little luck with the #midgrademadness writers...

Are you ready for it?

I didn't hear you?

Are you ready for it?????

Much better!

Everyone who entered a pitch for #midgrademadness is invited to submit their first seven pages (HERE)

  • Make sure you have your information and manuscript formatted correctly. (Font: Times New Roman, 12 pt., double spaced, header with page numbers) 
  • No cover letter or pitch needed...We already read them.
  • You must submit your 7 pages by 8 PM CST on March 18th to be considered.
Come back on April 7th to see if you are one of the lucky five winners!

Each winner will receive a 30 minute phone call with Terrie. In addition to a critique of the first seven (7) pages originally entered into the contest, each winner will be encouraged to discuss their work in general, and will be invited to ask questions pertaining to their writing careers and the publishing industry. 

May the Luck of the Irish be with you....

FYI: The window is officially closed for submissions. Mean ol' me. Can't wait to see who effectively submitted their first seven pages, hold me back...I'm going in! Thanks to Sharon for hosting, helping, and handling all the rough stuff. I love middle grade material, but I've really loved working with her on #midgrademadness!
