I couldn't be more thrilled & honored to be mentoring Adult for Pitch Wars this year with my dear friend and fellow debut author Jenny L. Howe! Jenny and I met in 2015 and instantly bonded over writing and chocolate, so our team name of #TeamHotChocolateAndDonuts is quite fitting!
"Pitch Wars is a volunteer-run mentoring program where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each to mentor. Mentors read the entire manuscript and offer suggestions on how to make the manuscript shine for the agent showcase." (Quoted from the Pitch Wars website)
Stay tuned for Pitch Wars announcements as dates draw near! As past Pitch Wars mentees ourselves, we CANNOT WAIT to greet you & your words with endless enthusiasm!
Our wishlist will be posted on September 11, 2021! Until then, here are some helpful links:
