Another Awesome Writing Contest

When it rains it pours...in a good way where writing contests are concerned!
The lovlies over at YAtopia are hosting an agent pitch contest with agent Ammi-Joan Paquette.  Now this is good people, because she isn't actually accepting queries!  It doesn't get more exclusive than that right?

So here are the rules:
1) Be a follower of the blog. Nice and easy.

2) Blog about this contest and include a link with your entry. If you don't have a blog, you may tweet or make a facebook status. But we prefer blog.

3) Create a TWO SENTENCE pitch. And not a massively long run-on sentence either. Two concise sentences that will hook Joan to your book and have her desperate to read more.

4) Include the opening line of your manuscript.

5) Manuscripts that you submit should be completed. I leave it up to you whether you decide to submit a half finished manuscript. You'll have to deal with it SHOULD Joan request you send her the full.

6) This contest will be capped at either 150 entries OR will end midnight on the 24th March.

7) Winners to be announced (along with prizes) on 31st March.

8) Only childrens and young adult categories will be accepted. Sorry!

and this is the entry form for ya:
Story Name:
Blog/Twitter/Facebook link:
2 Sentence Pitch:
Opening sentence:

Good luck writers!
