If you have a completed manuscript, this Saturday you can submit to an exciting writing event called Pitch to Publication.
Writers will pitch their manuscripts to three of fifteen participating editors (myself included, of course!) for the chance to be selected as an editor’s mentee for the entire month of November. That’s right, you get a full month of free editing! Then, the agent round starts on December 2nd and you could be chosen for representation.
For more details and guidelines, please check out the official rules.
You can check out each editor’s manuscript wishlist in this handy cheat sheet.
There are also in-depth profiles on each editor.
You can check out the participating agents here.
Please hang out with us on Twitter using the hashtag: #p2p16.
What I’ll be Looking For
If you are interested in submitting to me, I will be looking for a manuscript that wins over my heart. Something with a unique idea that really makes me stand up and take notice. I will be accepting middle grade, young adult, and adult. I would especially love to see stories with darker tones, such as horror, thrillers, and dark fantasy and science fiction.
I’m also a sucker for ragtag groups and unlikely friendships, ghosts, mental illness, psychological horror, twists and turns, subtle clues, twist endings, moral ambiguity, non-romantic relationships (friends, family, etc.), and deep complex characters.
I am not interested in genre romance for adults or young adults.
I really hope you will consider participating, and please help spread the word to other writers who could benefit from this exciting event!
I am thrilled to get to spend a whole month working with a deserving and talented mentee!

I really wish I were writing in English, what a great opportunity!
And thankyou for amazingly useful and practicable advice in the videos. Usually start off a writing session with looking at one to get on the right track.
I see the instruction at http://pitch2pub.com/node/6: “We use Submittable to manage our submissions process. From our home page here at pitch2pub.com, youâll click a button that will open an easy-to-use form. Youâll be prompted to copy & paste your query letter into one field, upload your sample pages into another field, and fill out a little information about yourself. Itâs that simple!”, but I don’t see any submission button.
Am I missing something?
The event does not start until noon today. The submission form will be up then.
Great to know! My book is no where near completion but I am excited that events like this happen.
