Since joining twitter, I've found that the best thing besides meeting other writer's is finding out about contests! Seriously, if you're not tweeting yet, get to it. Find different authors, agents, writer's and follow them.
Here are three contests either currently running or coming up in the next couple of weeks!
Adventures in YA & Children's Publishing is hosting a Pitch+250 contest! It's running now and closes either on May 3rd or after they get 100 submissions. So go polish your 100 word pitch and first 250 and email it over right away!
The Writer's Voice starts in 2 days! Haven't heard of it? Go here to check out the details.
And last, but not least, Query Kombat is launching on May 13th! The details are here and you still have time to win a free pass by posting your book nickname by May 3rd!
Good luck everyone! I'll see you there :)
