Major #TeenPit News!

Welcome to #TeenPit! I know this is the moment you’ve been waiting for all week, and we are thrilled to share with you the grand prize waiting for our successful teen writer!


Wait for it.


A bit more.


Okay. Are you sitting down? We think you should.

The winner of the inaugural 2017 #TeenPit contest will receive a slot in the #PitchWars mentor round! That means you don’t have to wonder if you’ll get into #PitchWars. You are in. You will have a mentor to help you polish your entire book during the #PitchWars competition this summer. You WILL get into the agent round.


Let’s all take a moment…repeat after us…THANK YOU BRENDA DRAKE!

If you’re new to the Twitter pitch circuit, you may not know Brenda Drake.


If you are serious about making a career out of your writing, you should.

These are her books:

This is her website: Go there. Learn things.

Can you believe it?

#TeenPit leads you to #PitchWars. WOW!

But….and this is a big one…. YOUR BOOK MUST BE COMPLETE TO ENTER THE #PITCHWARS ROUND. The top three contestants in #TeenPit will be asked to send in their FULL MANUSCRIPTS for the #PitchWars round.

P.S. You do not have to have a complete manuscript for the mentor round.

Don’t forget: The submission window opens on Saturday, April 15th. Work on polishing your books NOW! Ask us questions. Follow writers and editors in the business to learn more. Watch this blog! I will be posting up hints, tips, and links over the next several weeks to help you craft your pitch and self-edit your manuscript.

Most importantly…WRITE! Write now. Write everyday. Plot, outline, craft, polish, and shine. We can’t wait to read your work!
