Workshops for Get Your Pitch On will start on October 1, but you can send your pitches now to secure your spot with a host blog!
How to submit:
1. Email your draft pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Be sure to include PitchOnWS and the title of the manuscript in the subject line. (example: PitchOnWS: Extraction)
3. Pitches must follow the formatting as specified for the Get Your Pitch On contest. If you missed if before check out this post here.
Draft pitches will be evenly distributed between the workshop host blogs. You can see the list of the other blogs participating here. There is no date deadline for the workshops. Each blog has allocated a set number of pitches that they can host and once those spots are filled, no more submissions will be taken.
**Important Rule:** If you want to participate in a workshop, you must be prepared to comment on at least one other pitch!
BUT, there's an incentive!! For each critique you leave in the comments of the pitches on any host blog, you get an entry into a drawing to win one of eight 10-page critiques from our contest host Sharon Johnston and workshop hosts Larissa Hardesty, Stephanie Diaz (that's me!), Catherine Scully, Jodie Andrefski, Paula Sangare, Talynn Lynn and Kaitlin Adams. Please use the exact same name for all of your critiques. This opportunity ends 10/14/2012, so get critiquing!
As a reminder, these #PitchOn Workshops are meant to prepare you to submit your pitches to editor Marisa Pintado during the main event on October 15th, over at Down Under Wonderings and YAtopia. An interview with Marisa will be up on YAtopia soon. The exact pitch contest opening times will be included in that post.
Have fun spicing up those pitches!
