Hey there! We’re Meryl (they/them) and Rosie (she/her) and this is our 2019 Pitch Wars submission wishlist! We’re so glad you stopped by.
Below you’ll find information about who we are, what we’re looking for in submissions, what might not be the best fit for us this year, and links to our mentor profiles and social media handles where you can get to know us a bit further and ask specific questions.
If you don’t know, Pitch Wars is a mentoring program where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each to spend three months revising their manuscript. It ends in February with an Agent Showcase, where agents can read a pitch/first page and can request to read more. You can learn more about Pitch Wars at pitchwars.org.
We encourage you to read our (and all mentors’ wishlists) carefully. Since you can only apply to four mentors (or mentor teams), you want to find the wishlists and mentors you think will best mesh with you and your MS.
Parts of the rest of this wishlist may not be safe for work.
