"Dear Lucky Agent" Contest at GLA: Kids Novels

Get your first 100-200 words ready, folks!

Guide to Literary Agents is having a contest! This is the second of a series of contests on GLA, and this time, they want YA and MG novels. Their guest literary agent this round, Jennifer Laughran, is with the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. If I recall correctly, Ms. Laughran is a New Orleans native, so she must be in a very generous mood since Sunday. ;)

To be eligible to submit, I ask that you do one of two things: 1) Mention and link to this contest twice through your social media - blogs, Twitter, Facebook; or 2) just mention this contest once and also add Guide to Literary Agents Blog (www.guidetoliteraryagents.com/blog) to your blogroll. Please provide link(s) so I can verify eligibility.

PRIZES!!!

First place: 1) A critique of 25 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) A query critique from your agent judge. 3) Two free books from Writer's Digest Books (I will give you several choices and you pick the books your want).

Runner-ups - second and third place: 1) A critique of 10 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) One free book from Writer's Digest Books (I will give you several choices and you pick the book your want).

Great prizes, huh?
Good luck to all who enter!
