Pitch Madness via @brendadrake Is Approaching!


If y’all don’t already know, Brenda Drake is an amazing author that hosts some amazing opportunities for writers via contests. Pitch Madness is one of these awesome events that helps connect writers with literary agents! Writers submit a 35-word (max) pitch and the first 250 words of their completed manuscript on submission day. Then a team of readers choose the top sixty (60) entries to go onto the agent round.

The submission window for 2017 Pitch Madness is February 24, 2017. This is a blog contest, so stay tuned to Brenda’s site for entry information!

As always, good luck!

Don’t forget that tomorrow (February 20th) is PITCH MADNESS hosted by the fabulous contest guru Brenda Drake. This fabulous contest is for writers, of course, and the submission window will be open for 72 hours.


You need to have a completed and polished manuscript to enter (MG, YA, NA, & A fiction, there won’t be any non-fiction this year). The required elements are a 35 word pitch and the first 250 words of your manuscript. A team of readers will choose 60 top entries for agents to play a game of Sorry to try and win their favorites. The agent round will be March 3-4, 2015. If you want to see the list of participating agents, go here.

As always, good luck and happy writing!
