I promised you all something big today, and I hope this delivers. I'm hosting a pitch contest on my blog. The prize? A 50 page partial critique from me - old school style. I'll be printing out your partial and making lots of lovely, helpful notes in the margin like "oh snap!" and "um, no, this is dumb" (actually they will be much more helpful, I promise). And then I will mail it to you.
Now if you don't follow this blog and you are wondering why the hell you should want a partial critique from me, I thought I'd give you my street cred. I'm repped by Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary+Media. My book, Crewel, sold at auction. It will be published by FSG next fall. I'm very nice, and I drink too much coffee.
Every day until September 5th, I'll be choosing one entry to highlight on facebook and offer feedback on. So make sure you are following my page to see if you've been randomly chosen! The winner of the critique will be selected by myself.
So here's the details:
1. You have 100 words or less to pitch your story.
2. It doesn't have to be finished (you'll have 3 months to redeem your critique!)
3. You have until September 5, 2011 at 11:59 CST to enter.
4. You have to share this contest somewhere: facebook or twitter or your blog.
