Check out this fun new contest
at Kidlit.com! Associate agent Mary Kole of Andrea Brown Literary Agency
is running her first query contest:
Attention, writers: Copy and paste your query as a comment [on the contest page]. Your query has to be for a children’s book (YA, MG or picturebook), it has to be for a manuscript that is FINISHED and could be sent out to an agent, and it must be under 500 words. To be clear, you have to either paste a query letter into the comments field (along with your other blog/Twitter information, per the Contest Rules) or email it to me by October 31st in order to qualify.
If you email your query to me (mary at kidlit dot com), please put “Contest” in the subject line, not “Query” because then it will be filtered into my slush. Once I have all entries, I will pick the most compelling query, dissect what makes it so awesome on the site AND award you the fabulous prize:
A critique of the first 30 pages of your manuscript!
