Pitch Wars is rapidly coming to a close and I wanted to give everyone a quick update. Behind the scenes both mentors and mentee's have been super busy reading, critiquing, and polishing their manuscripts and pitches. But it's almost time to snag some agents! Mentor picks must be ready by January 16th because they go live and in front of 16 agents on the YAMisFits blog on January 23rd.
Alternates must be ready by January 20th. Don't worry, your mentors should be helping you with everything you need to do. The alternates pitches will go up on four different blogs on January 23rd. These blogs will be open to any and all agents! My blog will be hosting YA alternates, so be sure to stop by and check them out! When I have the other blogs confirmed, I'll let you know their links as well.
And finally, if you still want a chance to catch an agent's attention, there's a Twitter Pitch Party going on the hashtag #PitMad on January 25th from 8AM to 8PM. We'll announce more details as the event nears. So get your twitter pitches ready and make sure to include the hashtag in your 140 character count.

Let's do this!
