Do you have a completed, polished manuscript you would like to attract literary agent attention with?

If so Pitch Madness might be for you!

All of the details can be found here. But here are the basics.
- The submission window opens on February 26th.
- You will need a 35 (max) word pitch of your novel.
- You will need to submit the first 250 words of your novel.

If your submission catches the eye of the reader team agents will be able to read your submission. Agents have to play a game and winners of the game get to request partials and fulls from participants. So it's a game of chance, but also a fun way to potentially get some agent interest for your manuscript.

I cannot stress the importance of a finished and polished manuscript enough. You will be doing yourself a huge disservice to not submit your very best work.

You can also learn more by following Brenda Drake (@brendadrake) or through the hashtag #PitchMadness on Twitter.

Have fun and good luck! :D
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

I want to read your work!

Ask me anything. Talk to me about anything. Seriously. My PM box is always open <3

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
