YA DISCOVERY CONTEST
starts November 1st, 2014
No query? No pitch? No problem!
Get in front of top YA Editors and Agents
with only the first 250 words of your YA novel!
Have a young adult novel—or a YA novel idea—tucked away for a rainy day?
Are you putting off pitching your idea simply because you’re not sure
how to pitch an agent? No problem! All you have to do is submit the
first 250 words of your novel and you can win both exposure to editors,
and a reading of your manuscript from one of New York’s TOP literary
agents Regina Brooks.
Regina Brooks is the CEO of Serendipity Literary Agency and the author
of the award winning book Writing Great Books for Young Adults now
available in a second edition.
The top 20 submissions will all be read by a panel of five judges
comprised of top YA editors at Random House, HarperCollins, Harlequin,
Sourcebooks and Penguin, Scholastic, Feiwel and Friends, Kensington,
Candlewick, Bloomsbury, Simon and Schuster, and Penguin. The top 20
authors will receive a free copy of Writing Great Books for Young Adults
by Regina Brooks. Of the 20, they will pick the top five submissions and
provide each author with commentary. These five winners will also
receive a free ONE YEAR subscription to The Writer magazine. ONE Grand
Prize Winner will win a full manuscript reading and feedback from Regina
