THE 5th ANNUAL

YA DISCOVERY CONTEST

starts November 1st, 2014


No query? No pitch? No problem!


 

Get in front of top YA Editors and Agents
with only the first 250 words of your YA novel!

 

Have a young adult novel—or a YA novel idea—tucked away for a rainy day? Are you putting off pitching your idea simply because you’re not sure how to pitch an agent? No problem! All you have to do is submit the first 250 words of your novel and you can win both exposure to editors, and a reading of your manuscript from one of New York’s TOP literary agents, Serendipity's own, Regina Brooks.
 

—NOVEMBER IS NaNoWriMo—
In honor of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org)—an international event where aspiring novelists are encouraged to write an entire novel in 30 days—this contest is meant to encourage the aspiring YA author to get started on that novel by offering an incentive for completing the first 250 words.
