Christmas in July Agent-Judged Blog Comp: Submission Details!
As you know, Ruth Lauren Steven is co-hosting Christmas in July with me, and today we have a few more details for you.
First of all, if you missed the first post, you can find it here.
Now for the exciting bits :) We already told you you'll need a query letter and the first 500 words of your completed ms to enter. We'll both be reading ALL the entries (and possibly fighting over our favorites.) I'm kidding! (I'm not.)
Anyway, once we've come to a dignified and amicable decision (seriously, I fight dirty), we're going to help you edit your entry until it is a many spendoured thing. Not that you HAVE to take our advice - it's your work. But the advice will be there :)
So because we'll need time to read all the entries and you might need to time to polish them up after our suggestions, the timeline is going to look like this:
Next post - July 2nd. This one will reveal the identities of our ten agents!
Submission window - July 9th between 6:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST. Submissions should be sent to lottiehumphries14(at)yahoo(
dot)co(dot)uk. I'll set up an auto response so you'll know we've received your submission.
13th July - the 30 writers chosen by us will be posted.
18th July - the chosen (and polished!) entries go live on our blogs for the entire week, and requests will be made by the fabulous agents!!
