Contest of Epic Awesome With Agent Sara Megibow!

As promised, we bring you the official contest thread for our first ever agent-judged contest!


UPDATE: Sara just told us she is so impressed with these that she'll read the first 30 pages of THREE winners!!

This contest is now closed to entries. Stay tuned for Sara's top picks!


Meet the awesome agent who's agreed to be our first judge!
Sara Megibow of Nelson Literary Agency!

Sara is the Associate Literary Agent at Nelson Literary Agency. She's actively and enthusiastically acquiring new clients!

Nelson Literary Agency specializes in representing young adult and middle grade, science fiction and fantasy, romance (all genres except category or inspirational), commercial fiction, women's fiction (including chick lit) and high concept literary fiction.

Sara is particularly interested in "contemporary YA and MG novels - stories set in the real world, preferably with a multicultural or historical aspect." And would also "love to work on more science fiction and fantasy books." She loves "fantastical stories - especially when they are unique and beautifully written," and says "My favorite young adult reads in 2010 were ASH by Malinda Lo and THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger."

For those of you that don't write YA, Sara also likes romance books that are "super sexy and intelligent" and commercial fiction that has "a unique story and superior writing."

Some of Sara's clients and their upcoming books include:
Miranda Kenneally - SCORE (Sourcebooks, December 2011)

Allison Rushby - SHOOTING STARS

Jennifer Shaw Wolf - BREAKING BEAUTIFUL


And now for the best part, THE PRIZE. Sara has offered to review the first 30 pages of the THREE manuscripts whose pitches she liked the most!


How it works:
This contest is for COMPLETED POLISHED MANUSCRIPTS ONLY. If you wouldn't want an agent to read it yet, don't enter.

You have 140 characters to pitch your novel. NO ABBREVIATIONS--if the word is "When" please do not give us "whn". You may use numbers (16 instead of sixteen) but no abbreviated words. We have a great post with examples of elevator pitches in the archives, but remember, 140 characters ONLY. This includes punctuation and spaces. If you can not fit it in a tweet (hence the term "twitter pitch"), your entry will be disqualified. It's tough, but you can do it.

We will only accept entries in the genres that Sara Megibow represents. (See her bio above.)

While following our blog and spreading the word about the contest is not required, and won't get you any extra points, we would greatly appreciate it. The more the merrier!

Please put your entries in the comments of this post as follows:

Name:
Title:

Genre:


140 character pitch.


Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm ET Saturday, May 7th 2011. Any entries submitted after that time will be disqualified.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS about the contest, please ask them in the announcement thread from Monday. We would like to keep this post for entries only.

Only one entry per person.

**UPDATE**
It has been brought to our attention that some of you are receiving emails from a third party. We are not affiliated with any third parties, and we apologize if these emails have inconvenienced you in any way. We will not be contacting winners via email, we will simply post here on the blog. If you would like to remove your entry, to delete your email, and submit again, you are welcome to do so before the entry window closes at 11:59pm May 7th.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Sara is thus far very pleased with your entries! Thank you all!
