Group-Sponsored Agent Hunters' Best Agent Query Ever! Contest
|Deadline:||Aug 31, 2017|
The group Agent Hunters is sponsoring a Scribophile-only contest for queries and synopses. All genres of fiction are welcome.
Your query should contain the work’s genre, market consideration, elevator pitch, author bio with publishing credits (if any), a brief synopsis, and a courteous and professional closing. It must be 400 words or fewer and must begin with “Dear Agent.” You may wish to include a sentence or two as to why you have chosen this particular agent. Though, if that is the case, please remove the agent’s real name from your submission.
The aim of this contest is to promote the group, Agent Hunters, and to encourage fellow Scribophiles to polish their queries, share them, and hopefully, in doing so, we can all learn from one another.
If the winner so desires, I will happily tweet and blog about how spectacular the author's query is. It is possible, though unlikely, we will select more than one winning entry.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||10 karma points|
Entries must be received before midnight (UTC time) August 31, 2017.
Entries must be no more than 400 words per Scribophile’s count.
All genres of novels are acceptable.
Multiple entries are allowed, provided they are queries of different novels.
To enter the contest, post your work on Scribophile and check the box that says “Enter this work into the Group-Sponsored Agent Hunters' Best Agent Query Ever! Contest.” Your work will automatically be considered. The checkbox will be visible until the contest deadline, which is in UTC time.
Entry is free, but you’ll need karma points to post your work. You can earn karma points by writing critiques of other members work.
