But do you want to know what else happens in August? One of the greatest writing conventions ever!
And if that's not enough to get my mind off the inevitable weeping I'll be doing in September, I don't know what is.
This is WriteOnCon's third year and those ladies (and one gent) have some great stuff planned. There are agents, editors, authors galore!
And it's free. Yeah, free.
Here's a look at what's going on today:
8:30 AM, EST: Picture book query submissions open. Author Emma Walton Hamilton will be critiquing and offering advice/feedback. Open for 20 hours, so don’t rush! 50 will be selected using random.org.
10:00 AM, EST: Literary agent Peter Knapp YA/MG Pitch Critique submissions open. Open for 20 hours, so don’t freak out! 50 pitches will be selected using random.org
10:00 AM, EST: Building Better Sentences submissions open. Author Gennifer Albin will critique the FIRST 100 WORDS of your manuscript. Submissions will remain open until we receive 100 entries, and Gennifer will select 10 randomly to showcase for her event on Wednesday, August 15.
12:00 PM, EST: Picture book stanza submissions open. Authors Corey Rosen Schwartz and Tiffany Strelitz Haber will be critiquing and offering advice/feedback. Submissions are open for 21 hours, and 20 entries will be selected using random.org.
