I’ve got a very ambitious client who has volunteered the little extra hours in her very busy days (hey, she’s a mom! An Alaskan mom!) to run a contest on her blog for folks to submit a query and first 250 words of their middle grade and young adult manuscripts for ME to take a look at (check this post here).
I let Melodie talk me into this, because #1, she is awesome! And #2, I just know that there are some manuscripts out there that I wouldn’t see otherwise (seeing as EMLA is closed to queries and submission unless by referral or you meet me at a conference; check this page for my upcoming 2012 conference schedule).
Good luck! See you on Melodie’s blog!
