Young Adult Novel Discovery Competition6:14 PM
I was recently contacted by both Sourcebooks and Serendipity Literary Agency to help spread word about the Young Adult Novel Discovery Competition! I'm going to repost the information they sent to me in their email below... but it sounds like a great opportunity if you're a YA writer!
If you've written a novel for young adults—or have an idea for one that you would like to write—we invite you to enter our contest. Simply submit only an enticing title along with the first 250 words from the opening of your original YA novel.
The Grand Prize Winner will have the opportunity to submit an entire manuscript to YA literary agent Regina Brooks and receive a free, 10-week writing course, courtesy of Gotham Writers' Workshop, plus a collection of gourmet teas from Possibiliteas.
The Top Five Entrants (including the Grand Prize winner) will receive a 15-minute, one-on-one pitch session with Regina Brooks, one of New York’s premier literary agents for young adult books. They will also receive commentary on their submissions by editors at Scholastic, Disney, Harlequin Teen, Random House, Viking, Roaring Brook Press, Sourcebooks, and Kimani Tru and receive a one-year subscription to The Writer magazine.
The First 50 Entrants will receive a copy of Writing Great Books for Young Adults by Regina Brooks.
