Hi guys! This post is for those planning to participate in Pitch Wars. If you're not sure what Pitch Wars is, click here for more details!
Submissions start today (11/26)! The cut off time to get your applications (query & first five pages of manuscript) in is 8PM EST on December 5. Submission details below!
About Me: I write YA fiction in whatever genre strikes my fancy, whether that's science fiction or contemporary. But my heart ultimately belongs to fantasy and all its permutations. I'm a content editor for a small publisher, and I'm represented by the fab Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary.
I'm open to mentoring Young Adult manuscripts in the following genres:
♥ Fantasy (from urban to epic)
♥ Science Fiction
♥ LGBT (in combination with any genre)
I love everything from dark and disturbing to light and fluffy. Give me a strong plot, compelling characters, and high emotion. Make me care, and I'll love you forever.
I like to give a balanced critique of what works for me and what doesn't in regards to world building, characterization, and plot. While my feedback is never unnecessarily mean, be aware that I am very honest. We can discuss beforehand exactly what sort of feedback you're looking for :)
