Mentor Application Window Opens
This year’s Pitch Wars showcase runs from February 6-11, 2019. Adult entries go live at 12:01 a.m. EST on February 6, followed by MG on February 7 and YA on February 8. An entry consists of a pitch and first page, a maximum of 300 words between the two.
Registered agents can make a request by commenting on the entry. However, unlike in past years, comments will be hidden until the end of the showcase. The agent liaison team will see those comments come through via email. They will let mentor/mentee pairs know when they’ve received a request. Agents can register up through the last day of the showcase.
The showcase ends at 11:59 p.m. EST, at which point all comments will be publicly revealed. Mentees are then free to send requested materials and begin querying.
Our mentees have been working hard on these manuscripts for months, and we hope you enjoy taking a look at their pitches and first pages!
