I'm a 2018 Pitch Wars Mentor!
What is Pitch Wars?
Pitch Wars is a free mentoring program where more established writers and publishing pros mentor emerging writers for four months to help them revise their manuscript for an Agent Round. During the Agent Round, agents can read a sample and request to read more. Pitch Wars has had over 300 success stories since Brenda Drake started the program in 2012. Recent Pitch Wars novels include Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone, Zoje Stage’s Baby Teeth and Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient.
So if you're an unagented writer with a finished manuscript that's ready query (or are querying), please look into submitting to Pitch Wars. The mentor wishlist blog hop starts August 14 and the submission window is August 27 - 29, 2018.

There's a Forum!
Pitch Wars also has an amazing Forum up on their site where you can post anything from your query, first 250 words, and first 5 pages for critique by other members (and that includes any Pitch Wars Mentors who might be sniffing around!). There's even a thread broken down by category for people looking to connect with possible critique partners. If you're new to sharing your work with others, check out my Tips on Critique Partner Etiquette.

And did I mention------I'M A 2018 MENTOR!
I was chosen as a Pitch Wars mentee in 2016, and it changed everything for me. It opened my eyes to revision and community in a way that they hadn't been opened before and I'm so thankful for the chance to give back in this way!
And speaking of 'chance' my co-mentor is none other than my CP and bestie, author Kim Chance! We're working hard on our YA wishlist right now and we cannot wait to share it with you during the MENTOR WISHLIST BLOG HOP, starting August 14th!
