All you need is the first 150-200 words of your finished YA novel.
OK, I lied. You also need a logline, to mention the contest twice via social media, and to include your real name, book title, and contact email in your submission.
But seriously. THAT IS ALL.
There are two days left to enter this annual Dear Lucky Agent Contest put on by Writer’s Digest (repeat, Deadline: April 9). This round is open to all young adult entries. See the link for full details, including how to submit, or let me tempt you with a few more here:
Why you should enter
- Three winners get a professional critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of their MS (this contest’s judge is agent Andrea Somberg of Harvey Klinger Inc.) AND a free one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com.
- A previous judge went on to sign with one of the winners, and sold two of her books. MOTIVATION!
- It’s ridiculously easy. And FREE!
What you need to enter (again, note how little it is):
- The first 150-200 words of your completed YA novel (or as the site says, “book-length work of fiction”).
- The book’s title
- A one-sentence logline that describes the book
- Your real name and an email where you can be reached (be sure to include the email address in the entry)
- To share the contest twice via social media, and include proof (links, etc.) that you did so in your submission.
Why are you still reading this?
If your work is eligible, you should be dancing! (Alternatively: Submit first. Dance later.) Read more and learn how to enter on the official page for this contest before April 9.
