This post is for all my YA and Sci-Fi writer peeps. I realize this is late notice, but my little Monkey is well enough today to sit on the sofa so that I can drag the laptop out and type. I see fewer bed changes and bowl wash outs in store for me today, thankfully.
If you’re a young adult or science fiction writer with a finished manuscript ready for submission you may want to check out the Writer’s Digest contest, The Lucky Agent. Every year it changes genre and it just so happens to fit what I write this time around. I’ll be submitting. The fabulous Victoria Marini is judging the event and the top three winners will receive a critique of the first 10 double-spaced pages of their work. Plus, a free one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com ($50 value)! How cool is that? You have till January 31, 2013 to get those submissions in. Check out the details on Chuck’s Sambuchino’s blog.
Last year the judging agent actually signed one of the three winners and sold two of her books! Hey, wouldn’t you like to take a chance at something like that? You never know if you don’t try. Did I mention the contest is free? How can you pass that up?
If you aren’t already following Chuck Sambuchino’s blog I suggest you check it out. It’s a wonderful resource for writers looking to improve their craft and get published.
Thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate your support. Until next time, au revoir.
