A Fun YA/MG Contest!

   Posted by: Faith   in Everything Else

Have a completed YA or MG manuscript that you’ve been itching to do something with?

This morning I learned about the “Dear Lucky Agents” contest being held by Writer’s Digest, open until April 14th… full details are HERE.

Here’s a few of the details to pique your curiosity:


The first 150-200 words of your unpublished, book-length work of middle grade or young adult fiction. You must include a contact e-mail address with your entry and use your real name. Also, submit the title of the work and a logline (one-sentence description of the work) with your entry.


Top 3 winners all get: 1) A critique of 10 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) A free one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com.

…and the best part is… no entry fee! Just a couple of required mentions on social networking. I might even manage to enter this one!

Head over, read the rest of the details, and submit something! After all… why not? :)

Wow, if I had a completed YA manuscript I’d do this contest. Right now I’m up to 15K on the current YA WIP. Oh well.

Can you believe I missed the deadline on this one? Such a simple contest, and I even posted this note about it. April 15th I realized I’d missed it… *facepalm*
