Today, I'm hosting Kate Coursey of Teen Eyes Editorial for the second annual installment of “Can You Hook a Teen?” You may enter anytime between now and 11:59 p.m. EDT (or 8:59 p.m. PDT).
1. To enter for a chance to win Kate’s critique here on my
blog, your manuscript must be a YA or new adult fantasy or contemporary or
anything MG. (Please note that your manuscript DOESN'T HAVE TO BE COMPLETE!)
2. Your entry must include A ONE-SENTENCE PITCH and THE
FIRST 250 WORDS of your manuscript. If the 250th word falls in the middle of a
sentence, please include the rest of that sentence in your entry.
3. You must post your entry IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST.
Your comment should look like this:
Name: [Your name]
Title: [YOUR MANUSCRIPT’S TITLE]
Genre: [Your manuscript’s genre]
[A one-sentence pitch]
[The first 250 words of your manuscript]
The Prize Kate
will pick one winner from the entries posted in these comments, and that winner
will receive a 20,000-word in-depth critique.
The really great part is that you can also enter for a
chance to win the prize from the other two editors of Teen Eyes Editorial!

any of Taryn’s editorial services, check out Miss Snark’s First Victim. (You’ll
need to have a query to enter the contest on that blog.)
For a chance to win Brent Taylor’s 20,000-word in-depth critique, check

We’ll announce the winners sometime within the next week or
so. Good luck!
