Tomorrow is the OFFICIAL opening of #PitchWars!

I remember the feeling I had in 2014 when I was on the mentee side of things. I was so beyond pessimistic about getting in, but I figured, “Why not? What’s the worst that could happen? They say no?” I had been querying for about 2 months at that point and was learning ALL about rejection.

I had two mentors out of four request materials from me and both only requested the first 50 pages. I was absolutely sure I wasn’t going to be selected, but then BAM! I was in.

It was my first big win, but even then I don’t think I fully realized what an incredible opportunity it was. Not because I was going to get in front of agents—I had already been getting a good amount of requests querying the traditional way. But what I got out of #PitchWars was community. It was one-on-one mentorship that taught this newbie writer SOOO much about the craft.

I’m giddy thinking about finding Lynnette and I’s mentee this year! I can’t wait for he/she to experience what it feels like to take a manuscript to the next level, to find incredible writing friends who are at the EXACT same stage in the journey as you, and to be a part of the incredibly supportive #PitchWars community.

So to our future mentee… I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU!!!!!!

We’re going to have fun—we’re definitely going to work hard—but we’re going to have fun doing it!
