Here is a contest to start the new year off with a chance to get a literary agent, hosted by Writing in the Margins. This is for unpublished and unagented works featuring a person from an underrepresented group. This person needs to be in the starring role and not the BFF of the main character. They are looking for diversity!
The way it works: Entrants post their query and first chapter to a message board where moderators help whip them into shape. The entrants can post from January 1st, 2016 to January 15th,2016. The moderators will pick the best ten to move forward to the agent round. (Go here to register.) Be sure to follow their blog for important information and dates.
Take a look at the participating agents!
